This study compares the cost effectiveness of two alternative programmes with similar results: the Experimental Adult Literacy Programme in the University of Ibadan (Department of Adult Education) and the Abadina Primary School. The private cost per completer at the Primary School is three times higher than at the Department of Adult Education. The institutional cost is six times higher in the same order and the social cost is three and a half times higher.
