Adult Education Resourcesfrom: Maxx Family Life
In the past, adult education resources were limited. In larger cities, adults wanting to finish their high school education were usually limited to two or three high schools that offered adult classes. In smaller cities, adult basic education classes weren't offered every semester, or even every year.
Adults wanting to return to college had to work their schedules around the college’s daytime course schedule, since colleges offered few night classes and very few weekend classes. It wasn't uncommon for an employer to adjust an employee’s schedule so the employee could work evenings and weekends in order to attend college classes during the day.
Currently, with many more adults returning to the classroom, adult education resources are plentiful. The U.S. Department of Education promotes adult education resources for basic education, secondary education and language acquisition by providing federal funds to individual States for adult education programs. This allows local schools to offer continuing adult education programs that would otherwise not be available. Many other countries also subsidize adult education through local universities and learning centers.
Colleges are also experienceing an increasing number of adults return to the classroom to enhance their skills. This high demand for continuing adult education prompted colleges to offe more evening and weekend classes in the mid-1990s. Now that we have the Internet, many colleges are online and offer courses and colleges offering only courses online started happening as early as 1993.
You can now find dozens of accredited online universities by simply searching online for college courses, adult education, college degrees or continuing education.
In choosing an appropriate online course, it's important to know whether the college is accredited. There are now websites completely devoted to listing, and helping students find the best accredited online universities for their needs. Websites such as The Internet Public Library and EducationforAdults.com are excellent adult education resources that also offer guidance in finding an accredited program.
Each State in the U.S. and most other countries offer their own web-based adult education resources. Ed.gov, in the United States, offers a directory of accredited colleges, information on financial aid, a planning guide for adult students and information on graduate courses. EducationCanada.com offers links to basic education, post secondary education and online programs. Direct.Gov.UK offers adult education resources for the United Kingdom.
With the increased need for adult education comes the increased need to finance education. Abundant online resources are now available to help students find loans, grants and scholarships to finance their return to the classroom.
