High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - January 21, 1972, High Point, North Carolina 2b High Point Enterprise Friday january 21, 1972 answer lies in relating goals fight against illiteracy is Uphill Battle for state deaths amp funerals Petty funeral Raleigh a the fight against illiteracy is a Foo Trace on a Treadmill. Efforts to reach those adults lacking in Basic educational skills Are offset by the member of Young people who drop out of school. The backlog of need is so great that present programs Only touch the edges of the problem. An answer lies in relating literacy and manpower goals involving adult Basic education directly in planning to utilize and develop manpower resources gov. Bob Scott pointed out that approach recently in i charge to the North Carolina manpower Council. A a illiteracy must be eliminated and we need a specific practical deadline for doing it a Scott said in outlining objectives for the newly created Council the governors w o r d s heartened Charles m Barrett adult education director for the Community co 11 e g e it department. A this is very encouraging for the future of our he said. A one of the drawbacks has been that we were limited to literacy education period. Tying to skill training can improve the motivation to enrol and the will to stick with the North Carolina ranks High among the states both in the scope of the problem and its efforts to solve it. Based on the 1960 census used in figuring allocations of Federal funds for literacy training nearly one million tar heels 25 and older never finished the eighth Grade. That Means some 20 per cent of the state s population is at or near the level of functional illiteracy a handicapped by Lack of education in getting and keeping adequate employment or even coping with demands of modern society such As shopping in a supermarket. Only four other states i new York California Pennsylvania and Texas have a larger number of illiterates. If North Carolina has farther to go than most is was among the first to get started when the nation launched an assault on illiteracy under the 1964 economic Opportunity act Barrett recalled this state was the first to develop and secure approval for a Basic adult education plan. The classes designed to bring its students through an 8th Grade equivalent Are offered through the technical institutes and Community colleges. They Are taught wherever they can be located convenient to those who need them. Classrooms at the 54 tech institutes and Community colleges Are used so Are churches civic centers correctional institutions and in at least one instance a tobacco barn. Enrolments have totalled a most 180.000 since t h e programs Start. For the 1970-71 school year the figure was nearly 25.000 at that rate assuming successful completion for every student which is not the easel it would take 40 years to wipe out illiteracy in North Carolina. The conclusion Barrett agreed is that More must be done if the Battleground is to be moved off the Treadmill and into Range of Victory. Perhaps he said t h e manpower councils planning can be helpful in that direction Federal adult Basic education funds Are provided on a 90-10 Matching basis to the states. For the 1970-71 school year North Carolina had some $2 million for the purpose.
