Results of the 1990 Survey of Literacy Service Providers, State of New Mexico.
Stowell, Penelope, Ed.
The New Mexico Coalition for Literacy conducted a statewide literacy survey in May and June, 1990. Of 78 questionnaires distributed to programs believed to offer some adult literacy service, 34 responses were received, including those from 6 adult basic education programs, 1 adult education program on a reservation, 21 community-based and/or volunteer-based literacy programs, and 6 special population programs. Program data are presented in two groups: those of 24 community-based organizations (CBOs) and those of 10 non-CBO respondents. Because not all respondents answered each question, a list of organizations responding is presented with each question. Information presented includes the following: organization name; years founded; fiscal year dates; sponsoring agency and services provided; service area (rural or urban); teacher/tutor demographics and training; role of program coordinators; student characteristics; instructional methods used; instructional strategies and curricula used; funding sources; instructional sites and hours of operation; and areas currently of greatest need.
