Key recommendations included:
• Build awareness through a national marketing campaign that creates a common language around the cause; eradicates the stigma associated with adult literacy; and helps businesses, legislators, and adult learners understand what’s at stake if the nation does not invest in its most valuable asset – its workforce;
• Expand beyond traditional Title II adult education funding by taking a unified approach across agencies that leverages resources from various sources;
• Utilize technology in innovative ways that bolster and/or replace traditional classroom instruction and make learning convenient for adults; and
• Change state data systems so learner data can be shared across agencies; thereby eliminating regulatory barriers that take time and resources away from instruction.
Dr. Dan-Messier delivered closing remarks. “We know that we cannot do it at the Federal level. This is going to take sustained systemic work with many strategic partners, but you have our commitment from the Department of Education.”
