CAPE Research Project 2017-2018

The Critiquing Adult Participation in Education (CAPE) research is a national research project designed to meet the needs for greater knowledge. According to PIAAC, millions of US adults need basic skills. Current adult education resources serve approximately 10% of these adults annually, leaving 30 million without participation. The deterrents and the solutions are pressing issues for policymakers and adult educators. The CAPE research will answer those questions by surveying adults in two states on their motivations to forego education and find solutions to boost participation.
