TESOL Supports Adult Ed Bill

Senators Reed (D-RI) and Young (R-IN) introduced the Adult Education WORKS Act (S.5202) in efforts to strengthen and expand the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity ACT (WIOA) and the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA), benefiting the Adult Education profession and the students who participate and benefit from its many programs.

TESOL International Association supports S.5202, as it will increase funding for adult education programs, strengthen professional development opportunities and full-time staffing opportunities, and incorporate digital and information literacy into adult education programs. As one-third of adult education participants are multilingual learners of English (MLEs), this ACT will serve to enhance and supplement programs for increased opportunities and advancement.
