Improving Basic Skills in the Workplace: Workplace Literacy Programs in Region III.
Cooper, Evangeline W.; And Others
This companion booklet to "The Bottom Line" (a publication of the U.S. Departments of Labor and Education that highlighted changes in the work force and the population and cited some business efforts to improve employees' literacy skills) contains descriptions of 23 successful workplace literacy efforts in the Mid-Atlantic states. The programs described were selected to show the wide variety in workplace literacy programs--who teaches, who learns, where the training occurs, why the training is necessary or appropriate, how costs are borne, and what the results have been. A contact person is identified for each program. The booklet also identifies state and local sources for further information about workplace literacy programs. (Author/KC)
