An Assessment of Research Needs in Community Education.
Gansneder, Bruce M.; And Others
A study of research needs was conducted for the Mid-Atlantic Center for Community Education, focusing on facility use, interagency relationships, and citizen participation. Following a study of earlier research in the region, a survey instrument was constructed and sent to 1,396 identified community educators, with a total of 911 returned. The study found that community educators in the field exhibit a strong interest in research and that they want to participate in research. Suggested area of research included the following: (1) status research on citizen attitudes; (2) relational research on citizen attitudes; (3) theoretical research on citizen attitudes; (4) theoretical research on barriers and facilitators to interagency relationships; (5) status research on interagency relationships; and (6) relational research on interagency relationships. (The report contains 50 references, 24 tables, and 11 figures.) Prior research and the survey instrument are included in an appendix.) (KC)
