Public Policy in Financing Basic Education for Adults: An Investigation of the Cost-Benefit Relationships in Adult Basic Education in Public Schools and Community Colleges. Volume 3. Community Case Studies.
Griffith, William S.; And Others
Volume three presents community case studies of cities selected for the study. Cities chosen were those in which: a public school district or community college was doing an outstanding job in adult education; and the sponsorship of all or a part of the adult education program had been transferred from one district to another; and any district which had worked out a functioning inter-district cooperative arrangement for the adult education program. Cities were examined in such major areas as historical development, program, enrollments and courses, financing, impact of Federal funds, teaching staffs, and salaries. Data on funds, enrollments, wage rates and many other categories are tabulated and discussed within the text. Each chapter devoted to case studies also includes sections on persons interviewed and a bibliography. California case studies are Long Beach, Sacramento, San Diego, and San Francisco. Connecticut cities are Danbury, Hartford, Manchester-Vernon, and Waterbury. Florida cities are Gainesville, Jacksonville, Ocala, Pensacola, and Tampa. Danville, Joliet, Olney, Springfield, and a special section on the Maine-Oakton-Niles Adult and Continuing Education Program (MONACEP) are the Illinois case studies. Texas studies are Galveston, Houston, San Antonio, and Texas City. The data collection instruments used conclude the volume. (NH)
