SUMMARY OF QUARTERLY REPORTS U A P SUB-GRANTEES December 1999to February 2000
As the project moves further into its final year of operation, and the grants to within six months of their terminal dates, there has been a consolidation of the program in many areas. The literacy and remedial education activities continued to take center stage, and it is now more evident in many sub- grantees' programs that the UAP methodology is an integrated, holistic one, with the reproductive health, pre-vocational and personal and family development activities being very much supportive and reinforcing of the literacy program, thus molding the adolescent into one who is more prepared to fulfil his role in developing Jamaica. A n assessment of literacy teaching conducted at NGO teaching sites found that 53%of these met the minimum desired standard. The areas for improvement have largely to do with the insufficiency of alternative teaching methodologies, such as music, dance, c o m u u t e r s e t c , a n d t h e s t u d e n t : t e a c h e r r a t i o s .

Despite the marked increase which has been noted from the last report (17,250 current total versus 15,100 reported previously) only slight increases in recruitment were actually reported this period. The increase of 2,150 is almost entirely due to further clarification of the reports from previous periods, given the introduction of a new statistical reporting format. Additional discussions will be conducted
