Adult Education: A Catalyst for American Recovery and Growth

Thursday, February 25 at 2:00 pm EST

Today, 51.4 million adults in the United States lack basic literacy skills and 75.1 million Americans are low-skilled in numeracy. Adult education programs around the country serve these adults by providing numeracy, literacy, English language skills, digital literacy, work readiness, high school equivalency and more – all essential services, especially during an economic downturn.

Please join us for a briefing to learn first-hand how our nation’s adult education programs have pivoted to serve the most vulnerable students during the pandemic. During the briefing, you will hear from adult educators in the field and a current and former adult education student. Panelists will share successes and challenges with providing distance teaching/learning and upgrading their digital infrastructure in response to COVID social distancing practices. As we look ahead, adult education will be an integral piece of the recovery and growth puzzle. This briefing is your opportunity to get an inside look into adult education and we hope to see you there!
