Abstract or Summary
  • The California adult education program has considerable freedom in the type of classes which may be offered, as long as certain requirements of the State Education Code are met. The study was conducted in five counties in the north San Francisco Bay area. Inquiry forms were used to obtain information from teachers and students. In each school, administrators were interviewed and all industrial arts teachers contacted personally. Each teacher distributed inquiry forms to the students in his class. Under the existing program industrial arts objectives for avocational interests, health, and extension of formal education, appear to be served. While some social objectives are functioning, not all the socio-economic and consumer education contacts are realized. The avocational objective receives the main emphasis. The adult students fall into either one of two groups as follows: Group I - those who are interested only in using school facilities; Group II - those interested in the educational aspects. A majority of the students in the study were in Group I. It was determined that there is a high percentage of drop-outs in the classes. The following recommendations were made: If industrial arts classes were presented in a well organized program, a desire would be instilled in the adult student to gain more background information and to develop a greater degree of skill. Adequate facilities should be made available in the adult school and class sizes should be limited to the number which can make convenient and effective use of tools and equipment available. It should be required that all teachers who have had no preparation for adult education, complete in-service training within a reasonable period. The name and objectives of industrial arts should be given wider publicity in order to stimulate the interest of the public. There is a need for further study of the over-all program since industrial arts is a relatively new addition to the adult education program.
