Survey of Summer Institute Participants.
Colorado Univ., Boulder. Extension Div.
A survey of the participants in the National Summer Institutes for Teacher Trainers in Adult Basic Education held at the University of Colorado in 1966 and 1967, aimed at determining the extent to which institute participants were being employed to provide instructional leadership in local programs. Questionnaires were sent to 114 participants in the two institutes. In December, 1967 a followup letter and another copy of the questionnaire were sent to individuals who had not responded to the first request. Responses were received from 85% of the participants. Employment opportunities for 1967 participants were better than they were for those of 1966. There tends to be considerable variation among states in the non-employment of participants in both summer institutes. Montana, Utah, and Wyoming fared best in 1966-67 with only a small percentage of respondents indicating no teaching assignment. These percentages increased in the year 1967-68; for example, Colorado, which had no unemployed respondents from the 1967 summer institute, had 13% in the academic year 1967-68. (nl)
