A Call to "Re-map the U.S. Adult Literacy Problem"

Our colleagues at ProLiteracy recently published this thoughtful 'white paper', First Things First: Re-Map the U.S. Adult Literacy Problem, a call to all of us who advocate for adult literacy learners to work together to create a clear vision for our field. The author, Paul Jurmo, argues that if we are to provide effective support for adult learners, we need to better define the problems our field is encountering. He offers suggestions and a draft 'problem statement' to encourage us in moving forward in partnership with other stakeholders.
