A New Foundation: Perspectives on Community Education.
Kerensky, Vasil M.; Logsdon, James D.
In 1976-77, the U.S. Office of Education funded a series of investigations of community education by various organizations. These studies were designed to provide perspectives on community education that were prepared by groups essential to the community education process. This publication introduces the concept of community education as a new foundation for education, provides historical and societal perspectives, and then presents summaries of the reports made by the various organizations. Some of the subjects covered in the summaries include: the role of state educational agencies, the role of the state board of education, community education and school administrators, community education in junior colleges, a guide for the hearing impaired, involvement of older people, and the role of parks and recreation services. The appendix offers four case studies of community education. (Author/LD)
