Adult Education Priorities

Thu, Jan 7th 2021 01:00 pm

In December 2020, the National Coalition for Literacy and the Open Door Collective submitted a memo to the Biden-Harris Transition Team highlighting recommendations for policy shifts in adult education that would support the incoming administration's "build-back-better" priorities of economic recovery and racial equity. From the memo:

"...If building back better is to include all individuals in American society, it must also open opportunities for those adults who are not yet ready to participate fully in postsecondary credentialing and education programs."

Adult literacy is an important and often overlooked component of the education system in the United States. You'll find the memo here: https://bit.ly/3hSz3Md
