Be Proud of Our Story

The numbers speak for themselves. According to the Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce, by 2018, 63% of all U.S. jobs are expected to require education beyond high school. But nearly 50% of the U.S. workforce—about 88 million of 188 million adults aged 18 to 64—has achieved a high school education or less, along with low English language proficiency. It’s difficult to explain how employers will satisfy their recruitment needs for their workforce if this trend continues.

As adult educators, we lead the charge to solve these critical issues and other key barriers that leave adult learners behind. Be proud of the work that you do and our collective story in building highly effective partnerships with school districts, community colleges, workforce professionals, community- and volunteer-based organizations, state agencies and others to leverage our funding and create cohesive systems for adult learners to excel.
