An examination of the needs of adult education programs in Los Angeles by 1980. The total demand in the three levels of institutions--University of California Extension, junior colleges, and public schools--will range from 2.0 to 2.6 million adults. The major percentage will be in the 21 to 55 age group, the group that contributes most heavily to the area's productivity and tax base. The greatly increased need for teachers, facilities, and funds is obvious and will be felt most severely at the public school level. Several Educational Television programs are described as one solution. This paper was prepared for the Technology Goals Committee of the City Planning Department of Los Angeles. 17 pp.
