A Four-Year Follow-Up Study of the Forty-One Graduates - Class of "67" of the Jackson County Adult Evening High School Completion Program.
Gran, James R.
Conducted in Jackson County, Iowa, this four year followup study of the county's adult evening high school completion program was designed to reveal and measure long-range financial, educational, and social benefits. Questionnaire data were obtained on present age, sex, occupations, marital and family status, and other background characteristics as well as on perceived benefits. These were among the conclusions reached: (1) neither age, sex, marriage, employment, nor being a household head need deter adults from attending and graduating from this program; (2) since nearly all respondents are living locally, they will more than repay the cost of their education to the home community; (3) job changes and promotions, most of them directly or indirectly attributable to program completion, tended to result in income increases; (4) the three respondents who received further training might not have been able to do so without completing high school; (5) more adult graduates would continue their education if more courses were available locally at reasonable cost; (6) nearly all the graduates are better off socially or personally; and (7) graduates feel that the program represents a wise use of tax money.
