Using PIAAC and other Data to make a case for local support of Adult Basic Skills Programs

Hello Program Management Colleagues,

Happy 2021 !

Here's an example of what adult foundational (basic) skills programs can do to make a local case, by county or state, for the need to support adult education and literacy.

In this "Literacy by the Numbers" infographic, made by the San Diego Council on Literacy, you will see data, including the recent PIAAC synthetic estimates by county and state for adults in San Diego County. An infographic can help your program or adult school make the case with funders and potential funders, policymakers, potential donors and the general public. Learn more about how to make these infographics in the free onlineĀ  ProLiteracy Advocacy Toolkit.
