ADULT EDUCATION IN HOMEMAKING IN UPSHUR COUNTY IN WEST VIRGINIA, EVALUATION OF INTERESTS AND NEEDS FOR ADULT HOMEMAKING EDUCATION IN UPSHUR COUNTY, 1960-1961.
BOWYER, RUTH HURST
THE PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY WAS TO SECURE INFORMATION FROM MOTHERS OF JUNIOR HIGH AND HIGH SCHOOL PUPILS AS TO WHAT CLASSES SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE UPSHUR COUNTY, WEST VIRGINIA, ADULT HOMEMAKING PROGRAM. THE QUESTIONNAIRE DREW REPLIES FROM 457 (35 PEPERCENT) OF THOSE CONTACTED. RESPONSES SHOWED A GENERAL INTEREST THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY IN ATTENDING ADULT CLASSES. FINDINGS SHOWED THAT THOSE WITHOUT HOME ECONOMICS PREFER TO MEET IN THEIR HOME COMMUNITIES, WHILE THOSE WHO HAVE HAD SOME HOME ECONOMICS TRAINING PREFER TO MEET FOR CLASSES IN THE HOME ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT OF THE HIGH SCHOOL. IT APPEARED THAT EMPHASIS SHOULD BE PLACED ON CLASSES ON NEW SEWING TECHNIQUES, ADVANCED SEWING, AND QUICK AND EASY MEALS. OF LITTLE INTEREST TO THE MAJORITY WERE THE FOLLOWING SUGGESTED CLASSES--BUDGETING TIME AND MONEY, HOME DECORATION CLASSES, AND STRETCHING THE FOOD DOLLAR. RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF CONDUCTING SIMILAR STUDIES IN OTHER COUNTIES TO DETERMINE THE NEEDS OF HOMEMAKERS, INCLUDING OLDER HOMEMAKERS AND THOSE WITH YOUNG CHILDREN. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES 61 TABLES AND 13 REFERENCES.) THIS MASTERS THESIS IS AVAILABLE FROM WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY, MORGANTOWN, 122 PAGES. (LY)
