Title: Regulatory influence in a Honolulu adult education program, 2003-2005: A case study

Abstract: This study traces how regulatory compliance precipitated an adult education institution’s shift from open to managed enrollment. That shift was prompted by three administrative concerns derived from regulatory mandates: a requirement of data quality, a requirement of population coverage, and strong pressure for student promotion through the observed educational system. Richards and Lockhart (1996, p. 38) wrote: “Any language teaching program reflects both the culture of the institution... as well as collective decisions and beliefs of individual teachers.” Regulatory compliance produced a tension between principles and funding, and this paper examines the impact on institutional culture that resulted at one case.
