ESL and the changes in AEFLA WIOA funding

Good day, I am concerned about how the proposed changes in funding due to WIOA and AEFLA will effect ESL populations. I am interested in what teachers are doing to integrate workforce learning with ESL studies. We are just starting to tackle this.


Hello Gail, Thank you for raising this critically important issue that affects all programs serving adult English learners. You and others may be interested in participating in an upcoming webinar on June 17 from 2:00 to 3:00 ET "Aligned by Design: WIOA and Adult Education" sponsored by the National Skills Coalition mentioned recently in the Career Pathways Community of Practice that will highlight some general issues all programs need to be aware of. You can read a description and access a link to register for the webinar here.

Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
