Recruitment in Adult Basic Education, Handbook.
Mulvey, Mary C.
The handbook contains general information about adult basic education (ABE) and publicity for programs in the Providence School Department in particular, complete with materials used for recruitment via posters, newspaper articles, radio, television, and mailed flyers. Problems and causes of adult illiteracy are briefly discussed followed by ABE objectives, recruitment methods of undereducated adults, and community resources. Many of the materials aim at recruitment of adults for classes in English as a second language. Other sections include a list of advisory committee members, correspondence between the highway department and ABE to recruit adults who failed their driver's test because of low reading ability, and the enrichment program made available by the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts through a ticket endowment program, which attempted to reach new audiences by subsidizing ticket costs.
