A History of Adult Education in California: We've Been Here Before

At the Grassroots Meeting on Adult Education held in Berkeley on Saturday, June 21, 2014, Kristen Pursley presented a dynamite powerpoint on the history of Adult Ed in California.

Kristen Pursley works at West Contra Costa Adult School, is a longtime member of COSAS (Communities Organized in Support of Adult Schools), and authors the Save Your Adult School blog. 

The title of the powerpoint was "A History of Adult Education in California:  We've Been Here Before."   And wow.  She's right.  Looking over the facts here, it's clear.  We sure have.

We all learned a lot from her presentation and I think you will, too.

That's why, with her permission, I'm presenting it here.

Note, I did this kind of a crazy way.  My idea was: you can click on each "slide" to see it, save it, share it, etc.  Just be sure to give Kristen Pursley credit for it.  

Hit the "read more" to learn more.




Wow.  Gov Brown is not exactly our friend.

  1. Great post on the history of adult education. I think adult education is something that is very important. We all come from different places and different circumstances. Some of us are less fortunate than others and for whatever reason are unable to obtain an education while younger. Education is so important thought that it should be made available to all ages.
