Abstract : The paper is concerned with adult education in the Los Angeles area. Future needs for specialized educational services that fall outside the formal educational structure of the state are discussed. The report is also concerned with continuing education for the professional man or woman, with continuing educational and intellectual challenge for the housewife or retired person, for the nonprofessional and for the professional who wants to learn about other professions. The discussion considers the needs of the unskilled laborer who has the desire and the ability to find and learn a skill; the man whose skills are no longer economically valuable and who seeks a new set of skills; the curious who want to learn as a hobby. It considers also the high school dropout who wants to complete his education, the university dropout who now finds it timely and appropriate to complete his work, and the immigrant who seeks citizenship and eventual employment.
