The Assumptions and Implications of Federal Adult Education Legislation.
Havrilesky, C.
Two premises of Federal adult basic education legislation are that grade level completed measures achievement level or at least is significantly and positively related thereto, and that similar economic backgrounds indicate similar educational needs. Results of a 1967-68 New Jersey study, which showed relatively little relationship between grades completed and reading and mathematics achievement scores in a low income population, tend to contradict both premises. A more accurate formula is needed for adult education funding at the state and Federal levels, and the scope of dissimilar instructional needs of the target population must be further examined.
