Summary of Project STRIVE.
The Adult Learning Program Service (ALPS) is proposed by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It is an effort to involve public television in providing needed educational services to adults who have never completed high school but who have at least a sixth-grade reading level capability. STRIVE is the first in a series of projects. Its objectives are: (1) to improve adults' skills for solving practical problems of living; (2) to improve adults' abilities to achieve their own goals; (3) to improve their reading effectiveness; (4) to deepen their understanding of mathematics; and (5) to attract them to continuing learning. Included are statistical data drawn from the U. S. Census and from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. A partial list of general characteristics of STRIVE potential audiences and the programs' aims and formats are presented. (LS)
