Adult Basic and Secondary Education Program Statistics. Fiscal Year 1976.
Cain, Sylvester H.; Whalen, Barbara A.
Reports submitted to the National Center for Education Statistics provided data for this compilation and tabulation of data on adult participants in U.S. educational programs in fiscal year 1976. In the summary section introducing the charts, it is noted that adult education programs funded under P.L. 91-230 served over 1.6 million persons--an increase of more than 35% over the 1.22 million participating in fiscal year 1975--of whom over half were women. Six charts and thirty-two tables show breakdown of information by sex, by age, by state and territory, by staff and program characteristics (including training data for various types of state and local personnel), by separations/completions, by race/ethnicity (including three tables on Indochinese refugees), and, in some cases, by change in numbers since 1972. The survey report form is appended. (CP)
