A Follow-Up Study of the Fifty-Eight Graduates, Class of 1970, of the Jackson County Adult Evening High School Completion Program.
Gran, James R.
One of a series of one year and four year followups in the Jackson County (Iowa) Adult Evening High School Completion Program, this study assessed the educational, social or personal, and/or financial gains experienced thus far by the 58 member Class of 1970. General information (age, sex, residence, marital and family status) was sought, along with data on occupation and income, plans to continue one's education, tuition or nontuition status as students, perceived quality of instruction received, attitudes (including most and least valuable required and elective subjects), and suggestions for improving the program. These were some conclusions: (1) age, sex, marital status, occupation, or number of children need not deter adults wishing to complete their secondary education; (2) half the graduates have received promotions and job changes, and half of these attribute them directly or indirectly to the adult program; (3) graduates approve of the quality of instruction and recommend the program to others; (4) over 40% of the graduates desire postsecondary education and/or more high school subjects; (5) the graduates (largely residing locally) and their communities are realizing many tangible and intangible benefits.
