A Study to Determine the Educational Needs of Adults in the Regional Community Served by Pensacola Junior College.
Worley, A. Douglas; Einbecker, Polly Godwin
The purposes of this study were to survey the regional community served by Pensacola Junior College, to determine the number and location of adults over 25 years of age who have not completed the eighth grade, to determine how much education is already being provided for these adults, and to make recommendations concerning the educational needs discovered. Of the 57,955 adults over age 25 with less than an eighth grade education, only 1,323 (2.2 percent) were enrolled in adult basic education courses. The following recommendations are made: (1) Pensacola Junior College should make a strong commitment to education for this adult group; (2) The Adult Basic Education Department should expand its operations; (3) An attempt should be made to discover who provides local leadership in each neighborhood area and to invite these leaders to assist in making program decisions and in securing and motivating students; (4) An instructor-coordinator should be assigned to each region to facilitate program coordination; (5) New and expanded approaches to provide space for education should be implemented, such as mobile classrooms, and rooms in churches, or homes.
