Summary

The Long Range Follow-Up Survey (LRFUS) of 85 former adult basic education participants in Cobell, Wayne, and Lincoln Counties in West Virginia, is in its second year. Of the original 85 subjects, 2 have died and 7 presently are out of contact with the director and 4 teacher counselors. Each teacher-counselor follows a specific group. Group I is comprised of 30 men who originally were enrolled in compulsory Title V and WIN programs. Groups II and III are comprised of 30 former volunteer students, mostly women, from Title III ABE classes. Group IV is comprised of 25 men who also were non-volunteer students assigned to a combination ABE and diesel mechanic class. The functional level of most of the subjects at the time of their involvement in ABE was Level III. The non-volunteer classes were offered in an urban setting, although the clients were drawn from rural and small-town, as well as urban backgrounds. One of the volunteer groups was in an isolated rural setting; the other in a small town. The LRFUS has two main objectives: (1) to follow a sample of ABE graduates for three years to assess the ABE program by the impact on and relevance to the economic, family, educational, and community lives of the ex-students; and (2) to provide a threeyear supportive program to reinforce the ABE experience.
