Coyle, H. F., Jr.; And Others
Using the Akron (Ohio) Metropolitan Area as the study area, the exploratory research Project TOTAL (TO Teach ALI) is aimed at developing a generalizable model for analyzing urban adult educational needs, with disadvantaged adults receiving special attention. A primary purpose of the project TOTAL study is the collection of data for use in planning and coordinating post secondary programs serving the needs of the urban disadvantaged. Locusing on young people and adults beyond high school, data collected during the 1973 winter-sprint session was analyzed using course type (vocational-technical, personal development, and basic education) as the primary independent variable. It was found that the disadvantaged participated less than nondisadvantaged in adult education courses and generally utilized job related programs. An exploratory model consisting of a set of inquiries and recommended data sources in proposed for investigating adult education programs and strengthening post secondary programming. A 51-page appendix offers tables and questionnaires. (MW)
