Griffith, William S.; And Others
Volume two presents the study's two purposes (to document the effects of Federal financing of adult basic education on the delivery systems, and to propose models for financing adult education) and describes its design and findings in detail. It is a complete account of the project, including descriptions of case studies in each of five States. Data on enrollment, staffing, activities, growth, organization, governance, and other categories are tabulated and discussed within the text. Chapter one summarizes background information and organization of the study. Chapter two presents the scope of the study, its seven hypotheses regarding the effect of different approaches to funding, factors in selection of the sample, the choice of cities to best exemplify the range of institutional sponsorship arrangements, and other aspects of the study. Chapter three is a review of selected literature. Chapters four through eight present the case studies for the five States. Chapter nine describes major conclusions related to the seven hypotheses and presents recommendations under five headings: Federal government, State governments, local governments, universities, and associations of adult educators. The concluding chapter consists of an annotated bibliography covering publications which are included in the review of literature together with additional material. (NH)
