Working Papers on Issues in Community Education. Volume I.
Kaplan, Michael H., Ed.
Each of the nine papers in this collection focuses on a key issue in community education, examining relevant literature and research, and suggesting challenges for community educators. Topics are the following: (1) four major areas regarding collaboration: commitment, competition and creating, conflict, and collaboration as a problem rather than a solution; (2) the interaction and involvement that motivate the coordinators, educators, agency representatives, council members and participating citizens to renew their commitment to sustain a "sense of community" for all; (3) ideas and concepts on motivating citizen participation in education; (4) the development of community/school centers as ways of providing opportunities for program improvement and resource sharing; (5) church involvement with community education (rationale, collaboration, problems, and church role); (6) implications for mentally retarded adults; (7) the linkages and/or concerns between community education and multi-cultural education; (8) community education in the K-12 program; and (9) issues in the development of an effective certification process for community educators.
