Sherman, Janet M.
Journal of Adult Education, v18 n2 p19-30 Spr 1990

Results indicate the need for more positive publicity emphasizing socially acceptable reasons for attending; recruitment through support groups; attention to such barriers as child care, funding, and transportation; and enhancement of self-worth and progress in learning.
