Well, the point of the report is to make a case for MORE financial
commitment by government and others.

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

regarding misconceptions with Reach Higher America. 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

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?
