McGraw-Hill, Inc., New York, NY. Information and Training Service Div.; Bureau of Adult, Vocational, and Technical Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.
A survey of program administrators, interviews with program personnel and State employment service officers, and a research review were conducted to develop guidelines for meeting the occupational and training needs of undereducated adults. Data from programs in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Missouri, Virginia, West Virginia, the District of Columbia, New York City, and elsewhere were gathered on characteristics of educationally deficient adults, major program features, job and training opportunities, recruitment, screening, and testing, counseling and auxiliary services, and community involvement. Adult basic and vocational education (including job-oriented social training) for semiskilled and skilled occupations, united community efforts to recruit and encourage poorly motivated adults, close integration of literacy and job training, student grouping by ability, team teaching, instructor training, and research and development were among the major areas of need. Appendixes include a sample questionnaire, references, questionnaire respondents, programs and employment services visited, and a list of published materials used in the programs. (ly)
