Book Description:

Many adults in our nation lack literacy skills and knowledge, and they and their families are falling further and further behind. The Nat. Literacy Summit 2000 began as a joint public-private effort to help the nation get serious about meeting its literacy challenges. A major Summit meeting was followed by more than 25 meetings around the country to craft a shared goal for a literate America and to outline the actions that can make that goal a reality. The voices of hundreds of people from different groups and sectors -- instructors, tutors, admin., researchers, business people, social service providers, policymakers, and adult students themselves -- all contributed to creating a strategy for the work to be done. This report synthesizes the wealth of recommendations received. Illus.
