What is the current state of Adult Literacy in the Bronx? Are there good opportunities for all Bronx residents to access adult literacy programs and classes? Is the current TASC exam which measures equivalency helping or not helping students? What can the programs and organizations do more of to help students and increase capacity? What policy changes would help students move forward the most?
This gathering is for students, teachers, organizations providing adult literacy opportunities, funders, policy makers, elected officials, and all people interested in strengthening the workforce-related and social fabric of the Bronx. In gathering we hope to increase capacity for collaborative work on mutliple levels, articulate challenges, and reinforce the importance of a more-credentialed, more-skilled adult workforce.
We hope you can make it!
