The report to the North Carolina State Board of Education regarding the status of adult basic education (ABE) in the 57 institutes belonging to the North Carolina Community College System is presented in two parts. The first part consists of an overview of the operations of the ABE program, which offers educational opportunities to undereducated adults who are over 16 years old and are not enrolled in any public school or have under 12 years of schooling. The program focuses on two educational levels: Grades 0-8 and Grades 9-12. Classes are held wherever students find it convenient to meet. Various teaching methods are applied: films, filmstrips, television, outside speakers, field trips, individualized materials, and group discussions. At the secondary level, the program is based on the High School Equivalency Program and the Adult High School Diploma Program. Staff development programs for the part-time ABE instructors have used pre- and in-service education, workshops, and a university consortium. The second part of the report contains 43 pages of student comments on the ABE program in reading and writing conducted in Richmond County and Scotland County. The reports focus on "What Adult Education Means to Me." (EC)
