The adult basic education programs sponsored under the Adult Education Act of 1966 provided basic education to about 485,000 adult students throughout the nation and outlying areas during Fiscal Year 1969. This is an increase of about 29,000 students (6%) over the preceding year. New enrollees represented about 56% of total enrollment during the year, with 22% of new enrollees entering at the beginning level. A total of 85,659 students were reported as having successfully completed the program through the advanced (grade 8) level of instruction. This represents a 58% increase over the 54,100 who completed advanced level instruction the previous year. There were 3,548 state and local adult basic education workshops conducted for teachers during fiscal 1969. Approximately 28,000 of the 32,000 adult basic education staff in the nation received preservice and/or inservice training. (This report includes 18 tables on Federal grants to states during 1967-69; state and local adult basic education teachers, counselors, and other staff; conventional and programed instruction; dropouts and completers; classes and facilities; and such student characteristics as age, sex, race, ethnic groups, grade level, and geographic location.)
