A Study of Certain Characteristics of CDAE Teachers; A Study of Selected Teacher Characteristics and Their Relationship to Adult Teaching.
Davis, George; Wright, Rex
This study of selected characteristics of local teachers who were trained to teach in the Florida Civil Defense Adult Education (CDAE) program during 1961-1962, examined sex, field of certification, and previous experience in teaching adults. These characteristics were then analyzed to determine which of the trained teachers taught local classes; which teachers delayed before conducting CDAE classes; how many CDAE classes each teacher completed; and from which classes most students dropped out. A greater percentage of the experienced adult education teachers taught local CDAE classes (57%) than did the inexperienced teachers (38%). Of these latter, 22% delayed 90 days before teaching as compared with only 17% of those with an adult education background. Certified adult education had the fewest student dropouts (8%). Next were health and physical education teachers (17%); and most were vocational educational education teachers (18%). (nl)
