Mississippi loses up to one-third of its potential high school graduates between grades 9 and 12. Developing and implementing a comprehensive strategy for student recruitment are the first and most important steps in organizing an adult basic education program to serve the needs of these individuals. Recruitment requires trying as many methods as possible, including the following: high staff visibility, tours and open houses, student orientation, peer recruitment, and saturation of the community with public relations material. However, attrition rates are high, due to adult responsibilities and pressures. Adult basic education staff must provide the appropriate learning environment and flexibility of scheduling and offer counseling opportunities and role models to encourage students to remain in the program.
