Educational Demands Arising from Individual Needs and Purposes


by Paul L. Dressel 1956

The individuals who seek or need more education differ widely in ability, in adjustment, in beliefs, and in physical and mental health. While some needs are more potent in determining interest in further education, others are equally potent in determining the kind and amount. Some individuals desire only a few months of training while others aim at the professions. Some have heavy responsibilities and few resources while others ate in the most favorable position. Financial need and accessibility ate major elements in determining whether individuals can acquire education beyond the high-school level. Equally important is the availability of a wide range of programs adapted to the varying needs, interests, and abilities of the prospective students. Then, too, the programs must be so related to the economy of the community as to give reasonable insurance of placement. The six brief sketches which follow will illustrate the variability and the complexity of the patterns of need which cause individuals to seek more education.
