Reach Higher, America: Overcoming Crisis in the U.S. Workforce. Business
National Commission on Adult Literacy (NJ1)
The National Commission on Adult Literacy proposes creating a new Adult Education and Workforce Skills System with the capacity to effectively serve 20 million adults annually by the year 2020. The primary mission of this new System will be to move out-of-school adults to readiness for postsecondary education and job training and enable their success in the 21st Century workplace. Business--and labor--must be much more actively involved in advocacy at national, state, and local levels. The new generation of adult education and workforce skills programs must be driven by the current and evolving needs of employers and workers, especially through business and labor participation in state and local planning boards.
