Adult Education & Literacy Community Forum
UTHSC Laredo Regional Campus
1937 East Bustamante
This forum will give literacy organizations and others a chance to speak out on their public policy needs, ideas, recommendations and priorities for the new adult education program in Texas. In the wake of the Texas Legislature's 2013 decision to transfer adult education to the Texas Workforce Commission and recent changes in how Texas administers its adult education program, there has not been a more important moment for adult education in Texas in decades.
While change creates uncertainty, a huge opportunity exists to engage new voices to create an effective statewide adult education system. The forum will empower community leaders, inform policy recommendations to create an optimal system and build capacity for ongoing communication in the future for program participants, providers and other community quality of life benefits.
Following the forum, every participant will receive a detailed summary of Texans' adult education priorities once all forums in the state have been conducted and a summary of recommendations is compiled by the Texas Workforce Commission Adult Education & Literacy Advisory Program.
