Hello! My name is Paul Kim, and I am with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Office of Citizenship. I look forward to our discussion over the next three days where we will share ideas and information about useful resources to help you prepare your students for the naturalization interview and test.
Before we begin, I’d like to provide background about USCIS, the Office of Citizenship, general requirements for the naturalization process, and the naturalization test. This should provide a helpful foundation for our upcoming discussion.
I am copying a hopeful article written by Carol Leary, president of Bay Path University. Please post your thoughts in the comments below. Ideas on how you could use the data cited in this article to make the case for better college prep and postsecondary success for your students are appreciated.
Given the disproportionate representation of people of color in correctional and adult education classrooms, the announcement below has direct implications on our work. Many of the foundations and employers listed as partners in this initiative can provide employment and other opportunities for our adult education students as they prepare to advance in or re-enter the workforce. This is an amazing development!
Please take a look at the announcement below and consider registering for the call with Secretaries Duncan and Perez tomorrow. President Obama is scheduled to sign WIOA into law today, and tomorrow's discussion will be a good way to get a head start on digesting the implications for us all.
