This report reviews government-funded, English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) projects for adults at three schools: in Arlington (Virginia) public schools, in an El Paso (Texas) community college, and in the Massachusetts Department of Education. The Arlington Adult Learning System (AALS) demonstrated how coordination by a community-based organization, a vocational institution, and an institution of higher education helped adults prepare for job training and academic study. The Texas Success Through Transition English Project (STEP) worked with community-based organizations and the community college to deliver services to adults for academic and technical programs. The Massachusetts English Literacy Demonstration Project (MELD) illustrated how a State education agency supported partnerships with community-based organizations and community colleges to strengthen educational and employment opportunities for linguistic minorities in urban and rural areas of the state. Each model is described in detail, with the key elements of success extrapolated. Appendixes include project summaries, Federal Register announcement, and resource information.
