Family Learning Survey.
Nusbaum, Laurie; Willoughby, Mary
A study produced a profile of family literacy in Colorado to provide information on current services and baseline data for evaluating future development. Surveys were sent to 84 adult basic education (ABE) programs, 5 EvenStart programs (a national family-focused program), and 2 programs that were both ABE and EvenStart. Surveys were completed by 72 programs, for a response rate of 79%. Results indicated that (1) 44% of the programs conducted family learning programs in 1995; (2) 993 families participated in family learning programs; (3) 66% of the programs provided all 4 family literacy components (adult basic skills education, child development education, parents and children learning together, and "parent time"); (4) although programs served children from birth through high school, the median age was 8 years; and (5) 50% of collaborating partners of surveyed programs provided funding.
