First, please let me set the record straight. I am NOT the state
director of Adult Education in Arizona, but do work as an Education
Program Specialist in the Division of Adult Education.
One of the projects we have begun is the process of compiling
information and discussing an outline of pertinent topics to be included
in our Five Year Plan mandated for agencies receiving Federal funds as
part of the Workforce Enhancement Act signed into law by President
Clinton last month. This plan, as we understand it, will include the
demographics and needs of our adult basic education population over the
next five years as well as our strategies, goals, and action plan for
meeting those needs.
Next week, the state directors will be reviewing and clarifying with
Federal officials definitions and guidelines for material that should be
So far, we have drawn up lists of stakeholders throughout the
educational, social services, business, and government communities we
wish to contact in the next few months and have solicited some
information from other state agencies and state universities.We have
heard that other states are using surveys, teleconfrencing, and public
hearings as means of obtaining input.
As I mentioned in my previous post, one of our early frustrations is
finding statistics dealing with projections and trends of the adult
education population over the next five years.
I trust that this message clarifies the context of my last inquiry and
leads many of you to share with us your predictions, suggestions, and
hopes for adult education in your state over the next five years.
