  • Adult Education Handbook for California
  • California Adult Learner Persistence Project - Because mandatory attendance requirements do not apply to adults, the ability of students to voluntarily remain in education programs, or "persist," is a key factor in adult learner achievement. By focusing on learner persistence, adult education and literacy providers can better assist learners in meeting their educational goals.
