The Characteristics and Concerns of Adult Basic Education Teachers. A NCSALL Research Brief
Smith, Cristine; Hofer, Judy
National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL)
This Research Brief highlights key findings from an exploratory investigation of adult basic education teachers' characteristics and concerns. This in-depth exploration documents what is commonly known, but not well researched, about teachers in the field; the challenges they face in teaching, in their programs, and as members of the field of adult basic education; the training and preparation they receive; and their current working conditions. The results confirm that teachers and programs are stretched, stressed, and challenged as they try to provide the best possible services to a large number of students.
