St. Clair (EJ1072357) provides a summary and lays out some of the important issues inherent in the broad strategies articulated in "Making Skills Everyone's Business: A Call to Transform Adult Learning in the United States" (MSEB) (United States Department of Education [USDoE], 2015) (see ED558793). In this commentary, JoAnn Weinberger expands on and provides additional evidence of those issues and provide adult educators with examples of steps they could take to ensure that implementation strategies support adult students based on their knowledge of adult learners' needs and expectations and are workable. In particular, this commentary will focus on Strategy 1 in MSEB, "Act collectively to raise awareness and take joint ownership of solutions," as it creates the underpinning for all the other strategies.
