Summary

The three major issues in the education of exceptional adults as perceived by 40 state directors of adult education were identified through use of a questionnaire. Exceptional adults were defined as individuals 18 years of age or older who suffer from some mental handicap, such as mental retardation, brain damage, or psychological abnormality (mental illness). Responses to the questionnaire were tabulated, classified, and analyzed. The respondents cited 26 different specific issues in education for exceptional adults. The issues fall into six categories: those that are client centered; those that are curriculum centered; those that are institutional centered; those that are personnel centered; those that are financial; and those that are societal. The range in the number of times each categorical area was cited was from a high of 14 for the financial classification to a low of 6 for societal issues; client-centered issues were cited 12 times; curriculum issues 11 times; personnel issues 10 times; and institutional-centered issues 9 times.
