Why is nobody talking about Adult Ed and what can you do about it in 3 mins or less?

November 27, 2007

We all know that Adult Education (AL and ESOL) is a hidden topic in this country. Why are at least 44 million US Americans reading below a first grade reading level….and why is nobody talking about it?
Well, if you want to get people to start talking about it, please sign this petition !

The Literacy President Group is comprised of a wide range of leaders in the field of adult education and literacy, who volunteer their time to raise awareness on adult literacy as a key issue to be included in a national dialogue on education priorities. This is a petition urging all of the presidential candidates to respond to five questions about adult literacy policy under the next Administration.

This is really easy to do, it took me 3 minutes max.
I am the 1,709th signature out of the 10,000 that are needed.

Step One:
