Speak out on immigration reform!

The National Coalition for Literacy is working on developing proposals that would support immigrant integration as an important component of immigration reform. We're tackling questions such as--Should previously undocumented immigrants need to become proficient in English in order to get on a path to citizenship? How can the existing adult education system be a partner in immigration reform efforts?

What would YOU recommend be included in immigration reform with respect to learning English and integrating into society? Comment here or on our blog: http://blog.ncladvocacy.org/2013/03/speak-out-on-immigration-reform/

Ed & Workforce Dems Reintroduce Bill to Help Workers Find Jobs by Modernizing Workforce Development Programs: http://t.co/XbS1n7Aw

The Workforce Investment Act of 2013 – introduced last week by Reps. John Tierney (D-MA), Rubén Hinojosa (D-TX) and George Miller (D-CA.), is substantially the same as last year's WIA HR4227.  It incorporates many of the key provisions and principles of the Adult Education and Economic Growth Act, which the National Coalition for Literacy has supported.
