The Development of General Adult Education in Florida Under the Minimum Foundation Program.
Meeth, Louis H.,Jr.
Largely based on a historical review of selected demographic and socioeconomic data, this study documented, analyzed, and appraised the development of public school general adult education in Florida. Data were obtained on the scope and functions of Florida adult education programs before 1947, the development and organization of the General Adult Education Program from its founding (June 1948) through June 1962, the educational needs of Florida adults, and program effectiveness and adequacy in meeting these needs. On the basis of findings relating to literacy and elementary education, high school completion, civic and public affairs education, cultural and liberal education, and education for aging, recommendations were made in such areas as the financial support and legal status of the programs, the recruiting of students for basic education and high school completion courses, and periodic studies and surveys.
