Chickenhawk by Robert Mason( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

With more than half a million copies sold, Robert Mason's Chickenhawk is one of the best-selling books ever written about the Vietnam War. Critically acclaimed for its unflinching detail, the book is hailed by The New York Times as "a hypnotic narrative" and by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as "very simply the best book so far out of Vietnam." Fascinated with flying from a young age, Mason earned his private pilot's license even before graduating high school. He enlisted in the Army in 1964 and endured an extremely challenging "weeding out" process in an effort to fly helicopters. Sent to Vietnam, he survived more than 1,000 air combat missions despite the violence and brutality exploding all around him. This completely honest account of one soldier's traumatic experiences provides a perspective often neglected in print and film--that of the helicopter pilot. Through L.J. Ganser's powerful narration, the shattering story of men who lived and flew in constant peril is vividly re-told
The Evaluation of Adult High Schools: An Engine for School Improvement by Robert Mason( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In order to ensure that man keeps step with the changes in the world it is necessary to continue the learning process throughout adulthood. Although many authorities see obsolescence as the only alternative to continuing education, some authorities and professions are beginning to speak of mandatory adult education. Since adult education is based on the precept of the adult learner as a volunteer, the basic philosophy of adult education is attacked when it becomes compulsory. Furthermore, regulation raises questions of who will regulate and what criteria will they use. Whether compulsory or not, however, there is a need for the revitalization of adult education, a process which will have to originate in the education profession. To this end the North Central Association's standards for adult high schools provide a step in the right direction. Now, when elementary and secondary school enrollments are dropping, it might be opportune to deflect some educational resources into adult continuing education rather than have the funds eliminated from educational budgets. Although the task of continuing education for adults may forever remain unfulfilled, all educators must do everything in their power to help adults meet their educational needs now and in the future.

On the Evaluation of University Extension Programs: A Review and an Example with Illustrative Instruments and a Bibliography of Related Eric Literature. Information Series No. 11. Niu Information Program in Career Education by Frank Spikes( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A comparative study of on-campus and off-campus credit courses at Northern Illinois University during 1975, based on the perceptions of selected faculty members who taught the same course on- and off-campus and students enrolled in the courses, is described. The study attempted to determine if differences in perception were related to age, university status, academic discipline, or sex of students. Results showed that: (1) on campus courses were perceived by students as being of higher quality than off campus courses; (2) students over 51 years old felt their needs had been met more successfully than did all other student age groups; (3) the College of Professional Studies met perceived needs better than any other college; (4) male students perceived on- and off-campus courses as lower in quality than did female students; and (5) those students pursuing an academic or vocational goal were less satisfied with on- and off-campus courses than students whose main goal in attending college was social. Two appendices are included: one listing evaluation instruments used in the extension programs of sixteen representative college and universities and an annotated bibliography of fifty-five Educational Resources Information Center (eric) citations from 1966 through 1974.
