Kansas City School District, MO.
The activities and results of a special project to coordinate the Adult Basic Education components of four federally funded agencies in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area, as a means of reaching the hard-core functional illiterate and providing a more effective and economical academic program, are reported. The five objectives of the program were: (1) to provide interagency coordination efforts to assist each participant to move from economic dependency to self reliance; (2) to employ new techniques of recruitment aimed at reaching the target population and stimulating their desire to be involved; (3) to bring about better utilization of Federal funds by raising the educational level of a greater number of enrollees in a lesser amount of time; (4) to provide a more effective program of instruction using and testing the values of a variety of published materials, wide and improved use of educational techniques, through a well-planned teacher training program and in-service series conducted through the Adult Basic Education Regional Specialist at the University of Missouri; and (5) to develop an adult basic education evaluation system so that a continuing analysis of all aspects of the program is possible. It was concluded that most of the objectives of the project were met. Appendixes present material related to the four program objectives. (DB)
