Preparation for Employment as a Motivator for Adult Basic Education.
Gregory, Francis
Presenting formal research findings and other evidence in a literature review, the author discusses the value of combining technical education and/or job training with adult basic education (ABE) as a means of motivating the educational participation of the functionally illiterate, hard core unemployed. Attention is given to special characteristics of the hard core unemployed, areas of potential educational interest for unmotivated, undereducated young adults, program planning priorities in manpower development, and the need for more adequate motivational research. It is concluded that the motivation barrier can be overcome, and that rapid literacy training and general educational progress (leading in turn to higher aspirations for self and family) can be realized in an occupational training situation. Also included are 29 references and a list of 28 Federal programs having an ABE component or purpose. (LY)
