Adult basic education (ABE) programming efforts in Minnesota for the 1992-93 year were designed to accomplish the following state plan-stipulated goals: (1) continue developing/implementing a statewide ABE delivery system to enable adults (especially disadvantaged adults) with basic skill deficiencies to identify and achieve their personal and occupational goals; (2) continue encouraging development of systems to coordinate and cooperate with all available resources and services that could improve and/or expand delivery of individualized ABE and support and outreach services; (3) continue providing for and expanding the quality and availability of ABE staff development activities to help adult educators facilitate self-directive, practical, and personalized learning; (4) continue encouraging the development, adoption, and adaptation of innovative, effective, and cost-efficient methods and techniques for providing appropriate and timely adult learning options; and (5) continue developing and implementing a management system that adequately addresses the requirements stipulated in state and federal legislation. Compared to the previous year, enrollment in Minnesota ABE classes was up 3.8% in 1992-93, enrollment in English-as-a-Second-Language classes was up 8.0%, average attendance was up 14.2%, student completion of personal education plans was up 27.6%, and total program costs were up 9.92%.
