Summary

A workshop was held at George Washington University to consider the shortage of adult educators to meet the needs created by the Federally assisted programs in adult education and possible ways to prepare a wide variety of adult educators in large numbers, in a short period of time, without lowering professional standards. Discussion centered on three pre-workshop papers on the training of local leaders as teachers of functional illiterates, the development by universities of short term study programs for these teachers, and the need to reach and encourage those who do not participate in community affairs. Suggestions reflecting majority opinion emerged. Universities and institutes should be more fully used, perhaps with new university offices to coordinate the new Federal programs with departmental and faculty resources, and with institutes planned two years ahead. Estimates of local needs should be made realistically; an information clearinghouse should be set up by the Office of Education or other group. Professors should determine if they can contribute to the program and, if so, should be given financial assistance. Long and short range goals should be clearly differentiated. (jf)
