The primary purpose of this study was to determine user satisfaction of the community education program as perceived by stakeholders in North East Independent School District. A secondary purpose of this study was to examine the impact of community education support of a bond vote affecting the regular K-12 school program. Participants for the investigation were 522 stakeholders attending community education classes in North East Independent School District. Stakeholders responded to a questionnaire that provided data for this research. Research findings of this study:
- Stakeholders participating in community education programs were found to be well satisfied with the classes they attended.
- No difference existed in the perception of attitudes between adults 18 to 54 and those 55 and older who were taking community education classes.
- Participation in community education classes does affect the stakeholders?????? attitudes toward the regular K-12 school program. Recommendations for future study:
- Studies of this type should be conducted for adults who are not participating in community education programs within North East Independent School District to determine their educational, recreational, and vocational training needs.
- Program staff, including administrative and instructional personnel, should receive training regarding the importance and benefits of creating learning communities.
- A longitudinal study of stakeholders extending over several years should be undertaken to evaluate the long-term impact of community education programs.
