Synthesis: A Report on Federally Funded Training to Local Education Agencies.
Paddock, Susan C.; Felix, B. Lane
From 1976 to 1980, 27 projects developed by institutions of higher education received federal funding to train local educational agency personnel in the planning and operation of community education programs. In addition, four projects were funded to train personnel at the state level and seven to develop training materials. This report examines and synthesizes information about all funded projects. Data were gathered from three sources: project proposals, final reports, and project directors' evaluations of project success. The report discusses the methods and procedures of the study; provides summaries of each project's goals, approaches to training, and results; analyzes the project directors' perceptions of the importance of 70 competencies and the degree to which they were delivered in the projects; compares a single-year project with a multiple-year project; and makes recommendations for improving training in community education.
