IN THE FIRST STUDY, QUESTIONNAIRES WERE MAILED TO 1,669 INDIVIDUALS IN MEDICINE HAT AND REDCLIFF, ALBERTA AND 377 (22.6 PERCENT) WERE RETURNED. THE MAJORITY CLAIMED SOME KNOWLEDGE OF ADULT EDUCATION, WITH A SMALL BUT SIGNIFICANT GROUP, MAINLY ADULTS WITH THE LEAST EDUCATION AND LOWEST INCOME, ADMITTING IGNORANCE. ATTEMPTS SHOULD BE MADE TO DISCOVER AND USE THE MOST EFFECTIVE MEANS OF INFORMING AND MOTIVATING THIS POPULATION IN FURTHER EDUCATION. ADULTS WERE INTERESTED IN A WIDE RANGE OF COURSES WITH HOMEMAKING, ARTS AND CRAFTS, AND SPORTS AND LEISURE ACTIVITIES HEADING THE LIST.
