Basic Education and the Adult Migrant.
Bradtmueller, Weldon; Ulmer, Curtis
A program of adult academic education and prevocational training for unemployed adult migrant and seasonal workers in central and south Florida is described. Classes were held at nine centers 5 days a week for a total of 420 hours of instruction, and a stipend was awarded to participants. The results of tests that sought the educational characteristics of the workers are given. The mean post-test scores and the mean gain scores indicated steady and significant growth in all areas measured--vocabulary, reading, computation, and problem solving. The answers to questions relevant to the adult migrant as a learner should, the author believes, lead to modification of present programs in adult basic education and to the development of further educational programs for adult undereducated migrant and seasonal workers. Tables are included. (NH)
