Public Discussion on Improving Adult Literacy Instruction
   

Adult Literacy Cover

 

 

 

A public discussion of the National Research Council report Improving Adult Literacy: Options for Practice and Research was held on May 30, 2012. Members of the committee that wrote the report presented its key findings and messages, and invited experts explored the opportunities and challenges involved in acting on the report’s recommendations.

 

Speakers and audience members included policymakers, business leaders, administrators of adult literacy programs, public and private funders of research on literacy, and developers of curricula and education technologies. The discussion was designed to establish a common understanding of the report and to consider how it could be used to shape and support federal, state and local efforts to improve adult literacy instruction.
