Community Education Expansion and Outreach Linkages: Impact on Adult Education.
Ciavarella, Michael A., Ed.
This compendium of seven essays attempts to illustrate and/or demonstrate that community linkages are possible and community resources must be utilized in adult education. It begins with an introduction to the theme of the essays and the essays themselves. The first essay describes a unique linkage model that integrates adult basic education (ABE) with the career development of employees in industry. Emphasis in the second essay is on awareness and informational strategies that are especially effective when the leadership of the school, of the adult education staff, and of the community share in advocacy activities. The third essay deals with developing and utilizing a community education advisory council and its application to adult education and the needs assessment process. The fourth essay proposes a plan for meeting the ABE needs of the elderly in a low-income geographic area. Strategies are reviewed in the fifth essay for the purpose of recruiting ABE clientele for three types of community education sites. The sixth essay explores approaches for delivering ABE to sparsely populated rural communities. The seventh essay presents a model approach for program linkage and for alternative funding sources for adult education. (YLB)
