Department of Education Releases Fact Sheet on English Literacy Education in the Adult Basic Grant Program

English Literacy Education in the Adult Basic Grant ProgramThe Office of Vocational and Adult Education at the Department of Education recently released a one-page fact sheet on English literacy education in theĀ Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA) grantĀ program administered by the Division of Adult Education And Literacy. It includes useful statistics on student enrollment, outcomes, and demographics.

I don’t know this for a fact, but I have to assume this was put together as a resource for folks on the Hill working on immigration reform (English language acquisition is an issue in the pending legislation, since the pathway to citizenship will require undocumented immigrants to demonstrate some level of English proficiency).
