Abstract:
The paper provides adult educators with information that they can use to produce perspectives for the future of adult education in the first decade beyond 2000. Part 1 gives a perspective on the Federal Adult Education program which began in the 1960's. Part 2 reviews social, economic, technological, neuroscience and cognitive science trends and activities. Part 3 examines government and legislative trends shifting responsibility to the local level. Part 4 discusses planning issues involved in moving adult education from a marginal to a mainstream position in the U.S. educational system.
