Summary

This study summarizes responses to a questionnaire sent to graduates of the Educational Aide program, an off-campus program conducted by Los Angeles City College (LACC). The Educational Aide program was designed to upgrade skills and knowledge for individuals employed to assist teachers in the classroom, on the playground, and in several administrative offices of the Los Angeles Unified School District. Questionnaires were returned by 81 graduates, 33 percent of the total of 246 mailed. Over 90 percent of the respondents were women, over 90 percent were married or had been married, over half were over 40 years of age, nearly 80 percent were black, and two-thirds had transferred to a four-year college, with the remaining third currently employed as Education Aide K-12. Graduates were highly complimentary of their LACC experience. Nearly 90 percent of those responding indicated that their LACC courses prepared them for upper division work and that their A.A. degree work increased their skills as a teacher aide. The respondents also indicated that the opportunities provided for off-campus learning were important. Two-thirds indicated they would not have attended LACC had the classes not been provided off-campus, and over half claimed they would not have furthered their education. (Author/AH)
