Dougherty, Barbara, Ed.; Novak, Jan, Ed.
This publication describes many of the basic skills improvement programs and activities ongoing in the state of Wisconsin. The efforts included were identified through a statewide survey in which administrators and staff members of the programs provided the information included in this volume. Programs described are grouped in the following categories: K-12 public school districts; vocational, technical, and adult educational districts; agencies funded by the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA); correctional institutions; University of Wisconsin system; private colleges and universities; literacy programs; and the Wisconsin Youth Initiative. For each program, information on sponsor, skills addressed, target audience, funding sources, and other information is given, along with a brief description of the program and the name and address of a person to contact for further information.
