This study describes the experiences of parents pursuing education through WorkFirst with a special focus on parents who do and do not continue their education through the Basic Food Education & Training program (BFET). WorkFirst students who used BFET were more likely to complete a degree or credential, but this may be because these students tended to be more educationally prepared and had stronger work histories. WorkFirst students were also more likely to complete a credential if they did not require basic skills coursework, attended full-time, or enrolled in the Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training Program (I-BEST).
