Adult Literacy Leadership Project. Volume II. Background Research Papers.
Crew, Edith; Easton, Peter
This document is the second volume of the Adult Literacy Leadership Project, an effort to identify the educational and training needs of Florida's literacy personnel--instructors, administrators, and advisors. This volume contains three background research papers on topics related to the theme of the study used in preparing its analysis and recommendations. Section A contains a paper on "Challenge and Hope for Adult Literacy in Florida: Perspectives for the Year 2000," which examines the current literacy situation in the state. Section B conveys current practices in needs assessment and training strategies in states whose demographic profiles and socioeconomic characteristics closely approximate those of Florida. Virginia, Texas, Arkansas, California, and North Carolina are featured in this section. Section B also discusses implications for adult leadership development in Florida. Section C reviews current literature that relates to leadership development in adult education settings and provides future training strategies. (NLA)
