Development of a Hypothetical Model Planning-Programming-Budgeting System for Intergovernmental Cooperation in Adult Basic Education in Five Southwestern States.
Tapscott, Edward Vann
A model was developed for coordinating Federal, state, and local adult basic education. This model was then compared with the "Consumer Services" structure developed for total governmental operations at the three levels. Objectives and definitions of general and adult vocational educational content were developed. The program need to reach all undereducated adults (less than grade 8) by 1988 was projected. Potential benefits of raising their educational level were computed in terms of increased earnings and decreased welfare costs. Current operating costs were compared with the benefits being realized. Benefit cost ratios for both program operation and Federal costs were compared with three alternatives designed to improve the program by attracting younger males. A proposal involving full-day operation yielded the highest cost benefit ratio that would attract young males into the program; next best was a proposal to pay bonuses to undereducated males who complete high school.
