Summary

The Associate Commissioner of the Bureau of Adult, Vocational, and Technical Education is responsible for two broad and important programs, career education and broader and better services in adult education. Career education is a lifelong educational process beginning in kindergarten and extending through adult and continuing education. Career adult education is concerned with the personal development and enrichment of the adult citizen as he faces the challenges of family life, community problem solving, and expanding leisure time. In terms of providing broader and better services in adult education, several goals have been identified. Some of these include: (1) establishing the National Adult Education Staff Development Program, (2) completion of Adult Performance Levels as standards of achievement based on relevant adult learning objectives in the areas of reading, writing, computation, and general knowledge variables, (3) a minimum of one full-time adult education coordinator in every community of 5,000 or more citizens, (4) developing adult curriculums and learning strategies, and (5) systematic assessment of the 1980's and a determination of an adult's responsibilities to react to and control that environment.
