This moving commercial shows a father learning to read so that he can read his son's newly published book. It really displays the powerful roles that a community can play in an adult's journey to learn to read. Please take a moment to watch - and grab the Kleenex​. https://vimeo.com/85710858

Is funding Adult Literacy programs worth it? Can you prove it? Our new white paper, The Case for Investment in Basic Adult Education, which you can read by clicking below, is based on research conducted by Dr. Stephen Reder, a longtime literacy researcher & advocate. It addresses how participation in adult basic skills programs has a positive return on investment related to improving an adult’s life in areas such as employability & income, literacy, and high school equivalency and postsecondary attainment. Low adult literacy has a huge adverse effect on our nation’s economic and social well-being.

This research provides a strong case for the need for increased investment in adult education through federal and state policies, private foundations, and individual donors. We urge you to share the white paper through your networks to highlight the return on investment for adult literacy education. View the research at https://www.proliteracy.org/Reso…/Need-for-Literacy-Research.
