Summary

Mailed questionnaires gathered information from 25 elected and 36 appointed officials in seven east central Florida counties about their interests and behavior in regard to continuing education. The first phase of this study, in 1966, determined educational interests, while this, the second phase, determined actual behavior. Elected officials preferred activities provided by organizations other than educational institutions but participated little because of the lack of courses they wanted. Appointed officials preferred activities provided by educational institutions but did not participate much because of lack of time. Those who did participate were generally younger, with a higher academic achievement rate, and with more recent involvement in other educational activities than the non participants. Among the subjects of study most wanted were fiscal policy, management, public relations, personnel management, policy administration, and community planning. (the first phase of this study is reported in detail in edrs document number ED 011 639.) (pt)
