U.S. Department of Education Invites Participation and Feedback to Improve Adult Skills in the U.S.

Good evening, all!

I wanted to share with you information that was in last week's OVAE Connection concerning the engagement process that is being used to seek feedback for a national action plan to build the nation's capacity to improve the skills of adults.  Stakeholders are encouraged to host engagement events and the following provides information, links, and supplemental resources on how you might host your own local engagement event.  Feedback from engagement events should be submitted to OVAE by March 14, 2014.

Why Skills Matter in Your Community

On November 20, OVAE launched an engagement process that will result in a National Action Plan for improving the skills of low-skilled adults, a part of the Department’s response to the U.S. performance on the PIAAC Survey of Adult Skills.
