Abstract:

The report summarizes the results of a questionnaire that was sent to the education offices of 93 Air Force bases in the continental United States. The purpose of the questionnaire was to obtain objective information concerning the present status of Air Force reading improvement programs in an effort to obtain better insight into the type and degree of reading problems facing the Air Force. The information presented in this paper attempts to answer such questions as, how many airmen participate in reading improvement programs, what career fields have a significant number of low-ability readers, what reading programs are available at different bases, what are the major reading problems encountered by Air Force personnel, and who has the responsibility for organizing and financing the reading programs. Finally, recommendations concerning the Air Forces reading improvement programs are also discussed. Author
