How to Reach Adult Students
The Lumina Foundation, in partnership with Mathmatica and SHEEO, released a four-year evaluation of the Adult Promise programs around the nation. Maine, as you know, was one of the first states participating through MaineSpark! Learn more from the Mathmatica study and what Maine and other states are doing to support adult learners. "To date, 45 states have set college attainment goals, and adult students are key to reaching those goals. So understanding the needs of adults and how they differ from students right out of high school is essential. Today, we have some fresh insights. A newly released Mathematica study draws on data from its four-year evaluation of the Adult Promise programs. These programs, supported by Lumina Foundation and underway in 15 states, offer enhanced financial and other supports for adult students who want to keep learning and increasing their earning power."
