Does Mandatory Basic Education Improve Achievement Test Scores of AFDC Recipients?
Boudett, Kathryn Parker; Friedlander, Daniel
Evaluation Review, v21 n5 p568-88 Oct 1997
An analysis of California's Greater Avenues for Independence (GAIN) work-to-welfare program did not find achievement test score improvement as a result of mandatory adult education participation. This reanalysis of GAIN impact with 581 enrollees and 500 controls finds a more positive overall impact and confirms test score improvements in one county. (SLD)
