This report provides an overview of how the federally funded, state-administered adult education program under the Adult Education Act, as amended by the National Literacy Act, expanded programs and services to eligible parents and their children through family literacy programs in program year 1993-94. Some programming efforts include unified programs that integrated adult basic education, parenting skills, early childhood education, parent and child time, and home visits. The profiles were compiled from information collected through telephone conversations with selected state directors of adult education or staff members and reviews of state plans and annual narrative reports. Profiles of 50 states and the District of Columbia are included in this publication. The profiles include information on the following: state staff contacts, funding sources, number of family literacy programs, program implementation, ages of children served, curriculum used with children, parent and child assessment tests, coordinating agencies or organizations, staff development, issues and barriers, and special efforts.
