This book contains more than 100 abstracts of projects conducted in Pennsylvania during fiscal year 1992-93 funded through Section 353 of the federal Adult Education Act of 1988 (P.L. 100-297).

Each project abstract includes the following: a project title, number, funding information, contact person with address and telephone number, list of products produced, descriptors, a project description, and conclusions based on the evaluation and findings of each project funded. The projects address various priorities: ABE, General Educational Development test preparation, English as a Second Language, family literacy, work force education, learning disabilities, correctional education, conflict resolution, special needs students, computer uses in literacy education, and volunteer training, among other topics. The book is indexed by descriptors, by project director and agency, and by agency. (KC)
