Unmet Needs in Educating the Undereducated Adlut (pdf)
Frank Riessman
Riessman, a national authority in educating undereducated adults, discusses some of the problems he sees in our present educational system. He suggests providing an accelerated career-oriented education for mature adults. Deficiencies in teacher training and on-the-job training programs are discussed. He believes that a great pitfall of a teacher is that he's not able to make contact via the curriculum to the learner, and is thus unable to reach the learner. After reading this, how do you rate yourself as an educator?

Family Planning: Extension Aides See Need (pdf)
Jean Brand
Program aides working with low-income women in Extension's expanded nutrition program say this clientele is asking for family planning information. Many aides are answering questions about the topic, but often without adequate preparation to deal with it or "official" sanction to do so. They're finding it difficult to ignore or separate these questions from others they receive from these women on homemaking or nutrition topics. Where do you stand in this dilemma? Do these findings suggest that Extension should officially establish an educational program on famliy planning?

Mobilizing Resources for Health Education (pdf)
Virginia Li Wang
If we are to meet the potential "national crisis in health care," health education must be an integral part of any Extension prgram designed to improve the quality of living. The author suggests that the expertise of Extension or community health educators in helping people identify their needs and organize for action can be used to mobilize resources-- actual and potential patients, professionals, lay people, community groups and specific agencies-- to launch and carry out such activity. Program innovations at the state and local levels in Maryland are reviewed.
