End-of-the-Year Narrative Annual Report for Adult Education Programs. Bulletin 1799.
Meno, Marie A., Comp.
This narrative report provides descriptive information on the Louisiana adult education program. The report compares accomplishments to goals established for fiscal year 1986; defines reasons for slippage in areas in which goals have not been met; and determines on a statewide basis the average cost per student. Some of the highlights of the report are the following: (1) the program enrolled nearly 50,000 adults; (2) the average cost per student was $130.23; (3) more than 10,000 students received General Educational Development certificates; (4) more than 5,000 completed the eighth grade; (5) full- and part-time administrators and staff numbered more than 1,000; and (6) the majority of classes were conducted in the evenings in secondary and elementary school buildings, and 48 learning centers offered alternative adult education classes on a full-time basis. Recommendations were made for additional funding to improve the programs through the acquisition of new materials and software and upgrading and replacement of materials. More than half of the document consists of 16 appendices and 2 addenda containing statistical tables, administrative forms, addresses of adult education programs, results of a program evaluation, and instructions for preparing an annual performance report.
