Adult Basic Education in Nebraska: Administrator Comparison Study.
Nebraska Univ., Lincoln. Dept. of Adult and Continuing Education.
Nebraska Adult Basic Education (ABE) program administrators have been studied in terms of their general characteristics and part-or full-time positions in an attempt to gather data to assist in future program development, administrator recruitment, and administrator training programs. A questionnaire was sent to all known administrators in the State, with a 93.44% return. Four major sections sought information regarding: (1) demographic/biographic data; (2) the nature of each respondent's program, including problem evaluation; (3) administrator task analysis; and (4) perceptions of competencies and need for additional education. Data analysis is presented in 19 tables and major findings are enumerated. Most administrators were found to be male, part-time, between 30 and 50 years old, having some graduate training, and no specific training for adult education work. A variety of competency training and educational needs were uncovered, with part-time people indicating more need in this area. Results are stated in a variety of formats, and recommendations include that the State Department should continue to seek additional funding for hiring full-time administrators. The questionnaire, location of courses and programs, high school equivalency diploma statistics, and 1970 Census information regarding Nebraska's educationally disadvantaged adults are appended. (LH)
