State Community Education Planning. National Project Report.
Decker, Larry; And Others
During the National Project for State Community Education Planning and Development, the following main activities were accomplished: (1) each state received (or was eligible for) a State Community Education Planning Assistance Award for developing or updating a 5-year state plan for community education (1988-1993); (2) a planning and training workshop and other training sessions were conducted for state planning facilitators from each state; (3) the status of each state's community education development was determined; and (4) a set of elements common to successful state planning and development efforts was defined and incorporated in a planning guide for state community education development directors. The elements identified were leadership, networking, legislation and funding, training and technical assistance, and community education identity and support. As a result of the project, needed reinforcement and revitalization of existing community education networks were provided, and the stimulus to expand to other groups with related concerns was generated. (Abstracts of state plans for community education are included in this report.) (KC)
