Adult Education & Family Literacy Week (AEFL): The State of Adult Education Behind and Beyond our Prison Walls and What We Can do to Make it Better (AEFL Week focus)


Join us as we join the Coalition on Adult Basic Education (COABE) Literacy Behind & Beyond the Walls Committee in celebration of Adult Education Family Literacy Week. This interactive event will explore that state of adult education in the correctional setting and the importance of adult literacy for the men and women behind the walls of our prisons/jails and their families.

National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week raises public awareness about the need for and value of adult education and family literacy. Its goal is to increase financial and societal support for access to basic education programs for U.S. adults with low literacy, numeracy, and digital skills. Advocates across the country use this opportunity to elevate adult education and family literacy nationwide with policymakers, the media, and the community. This is an event not to be missed. #adulteducationandfamilyliteracyweek #coabe #lincs #adult #adulteducation #adultliteracy #justice #education #correctionaleducation #reentry
