Arizona funding for adult education is authorized by Arizona Revised Statutes; federal funding is received under provisions of the Adult Education Act. The mission of Arizona adult education programs is to ensure adults' access to high quality educational opportunities to support them in their employment, job training, and higher educational aspirations and acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for effective participation in society. Current programs include the following: adult basic education, citizenship/naturalization, Department of Economic Security (DES)/Job Opportunities and Basic Skills Program (JOBS), English for Speakers of Other Languages, family literacy, General Educational Development (GED) preparation, GED testing, programs for institutionalized adults, and Project Challenge. Student assessment is conducted on a regular basis, beginning with intake and initial placement and continuing through measuring progress and determining when goals are attained or should be revised. Activities have been instituted to increase emphasis on provision of high quality services and institutionalization of accountability measures. The Arizona Adult Literacy and Technology Resource Center has also been created. (The 15-page report is followed by information from the federal data tables for fiscal year 1996 and a comparison of available program financial data from 1964-96. A summary of demographic trends, changes in demand for particular types of instruction, and funding is provided with the summary tables that follow.) (YLB)
