Adult Education & Family Literacy ​Resources

By 2018, 63% of all jobs in the United States will require an education beyond high school. With more than 1.8 million immigrants arriving in the United States each year, adult education and literacy programs are more important than ever. More than 700,000 adults are currently enrolled in English literacy programs across the country, 37% of whom are unemployed but looking to improve their English language proficiency. This page provides resources for TESOL professionals looking to advocate for adult English learners, along with research and classroom materials to help improve existing adult literacy programs.
