According to recent surveys, thousands of potential adult basic literacy and
English-language students across the country wait each month to start
learning. Adult educators know that they must find ways to engage these
potential students in meaningful learning activities as soon as possible or
risk losing them.
A resource that addresses how to reduce waiting lists is now available free,
online from ProLiteracy America: Promising Practices: Reducing Waiting Lists
in Adult Education and Literacy Programs (73-pages, pdf format).
ProLiteracy worked with twenty-three adult education and literacy programs
to identify promising practices that help reduce student waiting lists. In
addition to the booklet, two videos (require high speed Internet connection)
and the resources referred to in the booklet are available at
This project was made possible through the generous support of the Dollar
General Literacy Foundation.
