A PROGRAM OF ADULT EDUCATION FOR THE MARSHALL COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL SERVICE AREA, LEWISBURG, TENNESSEE.
BARNES, JOHN O., JR.
THE NEED FOR AN ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAM IN THE MARSHALL COUNTY (TENNESSEE) HIGH SCHOOL SERVICE AREA WAS STUDIED THROUGH QUESTIONNAIRES COMPLETED BY 207 ADULTS, EXAMINATION OF SCHOOL AND GOVERNMENT RECORDS, AND PERSONAL INTERVIEWS. IT WAS FOUND THAT OVER HALF OF THE AREA RESIDENTS WERE NOT HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES, AND THAT MANY ADULTS DESIRED MORE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES OFFERED THROUGH THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. ADULTS WERE PRIMARILY INTERESTED IN LEARNING SKILLS TO HELP THEM MAKE A BETTER LIVING, BUT WANTED TO IMPROVE LEADERSHIP ABILITIES AND CITIZENSHIP ALSO. PEOPLE WERE WILLING TO PAY MORE TAXES FOR A PROGRAM OF ADULT EDUCATION. LACK OF TIME AND NOT LACK OF INTEREST OR MONEY WAS CONSIDERED TO BE THE GREATEST DETERRENT TO A SUCCESSFUL ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAM IN THE AREA. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES 10 TABLES, THE QUESTIONNAIRE, AND AN OUTLINE OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS OFFERED BY LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS.) THIS DOCUMENT IS A MASTERS THESIS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE, KNOXVILLE. 92 PAGES. (AJ)
