Summary

This report of an exploratory study of Adult Basic Education (ABE) gives a brief summary of background and methodology and represents findings about students and teachers in Shelby County, Tennessee. For the students 41 findings are reported relating to age, sex, race, marital status, years of schooling completed, employment, income, life style, reasons for enrollment, problems, and reactions to the program. For the teachers 65 findings are reported relating to age, sex, race, education, teaching experience, experience with and reactions to the ABE program, and their feelings as to the areas in which the program was successful in helping the students. Problems encountered in conducting the study made drawing conclusions difficult. Comments are offered with respect to several ways of improving the conduct of future studies; improving student-teacher relationships; assistance for teachers, both preservice and on-the-job; a followup of dropouts; and vocational choices of students. The results of the student and teacher questionnaires are tabulated as percentages in two appendixes to provide support for the statements in the report. The questionnaires are also included. (SA)
