The COABE conference in Dallas this week was the best-attended ever. Of course, it was in Texas!
As I reviewed the list of presentations, very few dealt specifically with issues related to topics that we address in this community, focusing specifically on diversity, poverty, or rural/nonformal programs. Why do you think that happens when this community is filled with views, opinions, and, yes, controversy related to what defines us and what is useful to us in education?
What issues would you bring up to present at conferences such as COABE that address the needs of adult learners in Adult Ed Programs? I have a few suggestions to add or to support yours. Let's talk! Leecy
