Summary

The purposes of this study of adult education facilities in brevard county, Florida, where the residents had an unusually high educational achievement and income, were to (1) determine who sponsored the adult educational activities in the county, (2) obtain a quantitative measure of the participation of adults, (3) determine what kinds of activities were offered by the different institutions, and (4) note trends in the development of facilities. Forty-nine organizations, agencies, and institutions identified as sponsoring adult education returned questionnaires. Activities were spread among state universities, private colleges, a junior college, proprietary schools, governmental agencies, ymca's, libraries, and the American red cross. Distribution of the programs by such classifications as academic, homemaking, and vocational, showed that institutions reflected special purposes. Geographic distribution of facilities appeared out of balance and there was a high incidence of sharing physical facilities. Projections of expected enrollments suggested development needs for the county. Comparisons to the st. Stevens study of Johnstone, reported in "volunteers for learning," supported the assumption that such communities tended to engage in adult education more than the national average.
