A Planning Process of Adult Education. Report of the Adult Education Ad Hoc Advisory Committee.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
Background is given for the state-level adult education planning process, developed in response to the need for program direction; definition of the relationship of adult education to other vocational and adult general education institutions; and delineation, articulation, and elimination of unnecessary duplication. Focus is on the Adult Education Ad Hoc Advisory Committee, which was formed to ensure that the development of the process reflected the needs of the total state population of California. Following a summary of the historical and legal perspective of adult education in California from 1856-1990, corresponding milestones, and enrollment figures for those years, and a statement of philosophy are given. Management plan recommendations focus on target populations, public relations, governance, interagency coordination, personnel, program development, and support services and are listed with corresponding statements of issues and goals. Following these are a list of policy recommendations, each preceded by a problem statement and issue-and-goals statements. Finally, a list of major recommendations is included to respond to Proposition 13 by establishing principles for a long-range financial and programmatic guarantee of adult education. Appended are abstracts of other adult education monographs, a master bibliography, and an annotated bibliography. Also included are statistical summaries of adult general education annual reports and annual enrollment figures by subject area. (FP)
