TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A legislative report says charging nominal fees may motivate Florida's adult education students to make better learning gains and help cut costs for the cash-strapped state.
Friday's report by the Office of Program Policy Analysis & Government Accountability, though, acknowledged some students may be unable to afford fees even as low as $50 to $100 a year.
The idea drew a critical response from the Adult and Community Educators of Florida. The group said there are better ways to motivate students, including setting long-term individual goals and better counseling.
The educators also objected to the report's conclusion that, except for dual-enrolled high schoolers, Florida's adult education completion rates are low.
