Illinois Community College Board is proudly serving the Illinois Community College System
Illinois Community College Board Adult Education Section

Economic and demographic changes are dramatically increasing the need for adult education, literacy, and English as a Second Language programs. Millions of Illinois residents lack the literacy skills that they need to obtain good jobs and to function well in an increasingly complex society. There is a direct correlation between higher literacy levels and higher income, numbers of weeks worked, children's success in school, and individual and family health. Large numbers of immigrants have come to this country seeking education, work, and a higher quality of life, yet many of these immigrants do not have the English literacy or other skills to enable them to meet social, educational, and work demands. To address the scope and diversity of need for adult education and literacy skills by both individuals and employers requires a strategy involving a variety of providers. Community colleges, public schools, community-based organizations and others each are uniquely suited to provide the education and services needed by various groups of adult learners.

 

Illinois Adult Education and Family Literacy Programs are observing National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week September 22-26, 2014. Follow the activities at www.excellenceinadulted.org
