Isn't this report just meaningless since there is little financial commitment to education by the government.

There has been some discussion on this topic on a couple of the National Institute for Literacy’s Discussions Lists – particularly the Workplace Literacy List. To read the thread of that discussion, go to the Workplace archives at http://www.nifl.gov/pipermail/workplace/2008/date.html and click on the posts that have Reach Higher America in the subject line. Feel free to subscribe so you can join in that discussion as well (subscribe at http://www.nifl.gov/mailman/listinfo/Workplace/).

> I’m curious to hear from subscribers what you think about this report. What sort of implications might it have in terms of assessment of students and accountability of programs – if you see any? If the recommendations of the report are put into effect, what types of tools, structures or processes would we need to better conduct assessment of students and accountability of programs? Or perhaps we already have the tools we need? Or perhaps this movement will not affect the assessment/testing/accountability angle at all?
