Rhode Island State Plan for Adult Basic Education. Long Range and Annual Program Plan, 1973-74.
Rhode Island State Dept. of Education, Providence. Bureau of Grants and Regulations.
The long range goal of the Rhode Island Adult Education program is to encourage the establishment of programs to enable all adults sixteen years and older to continue their education through secondary school and to secure training to make them more employable, productive, and responsible citizens. The State Adult Education Staff Development Plan provides pre-service and in-service training for teachers and teacher aids. Priorities and objectives are outlined. A survey of adult learning needs indicates that in fiscal year 1973 two percent of the 308,215 undereducated adults in the State are presently being served by the public schools of Rhode Island. Available resources (facilities, personnel, fiscal, advisory councils) are analyzed. A set of thirteen specific objectives has been drawn up. An evaluation of program practices and needs assessment was performed in 1973 through separate surveys of directors, teachers, students, and dropouts; the surveys themselves and findings resulting from them are described in terms of implications for redirection of the Rhode Island Adult Basic Education program in 1974. A final section of the report covers procedures and forms for application to the State Board for grants and contracts. (MS)
