The Changing Fabric of Adult Basic Education in Kansas
Zacharakis, Jeff
Educational Considerations, v35 n1 p6-10 Fall 2007
This article discusses the changing cultural fabric in Kansas. The author sees this change as an opportunity to strengthen and expand the Adult Basic Education and English as a Second Language programming. By taking this approach, adult education will appeal not only to best practices where authentic community-based approaches are indeed more effective at helping immigrants to become more literate in English, but also will shape policy and force policymakers to represent their interests within the context of civil society.
