Faubus, Deborah L.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Arkansas
The Crawford County Adult Education Program Evaluation was implemented to gather data that would assist in increasing the number of enrolled students at CCAEC. The data were compiled from state, federal, local extant data, a Community Opinion Survey and focus group interviews. Of the 1,015 Crawford County Residents who were emailed the COS, 213 completed the survey. The majority of the respondents were white females 45-59 years of age from Van Buren, Arkansas, who were in management, professional and related occupations with a household income of $50,000-$74,000 and have lived in Crawford County at least twenty years. The focus groups were Crawford County residents who were from various organizations, boards, CCAEC students and low income housing. Of the 1,428, 69 volunteered to become a member of one of nine focus groups who responded to nine questions. The extant data from CCAEC and ACE Arkansas Department of Career Education was used to describe the students, staff, instructors, class offering, class time, class location, operational and instructional budget. The extant data from the Van Buren Housing Authority was used to report the needs of lower income residents. The overall results from the Community Opinion Survey was that Crawford County Adult Education Center (CCAEC) was doing an excellent job of meeting the needs of Crawford County. The focus group participants indicated that the community's perspective of CCAEC was good. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
