I appreciate the good intention but please have mercy on the poor souls who have dial-up! I susbcribe to many lists. This last message has jammed my computer for hours when it did not crash. This was repeated several times. My "work" computer is in my home since I do not have a physical office. My land line is also useless for hours. Please provide links instead.

Thanks!

Subject: [Assessment 810] Natl Commission on Adult Literacy ResourceDocument Released




NEWS RELEASE - May 21, 2007, NYC -- On behalf of the National Commission on Adult Literacy,? MOUNTING PRESSURES FACING THE U.S. WORKFORCE AND THE INCREASING NEED FOR ADULT?EDUCATION AND LITERACY was released today by the Commission's chairman, its study director, and CAAL. The 67 resource document was one of several presentations made at the April 17, 2007 meeting of the National Commission. It was developed by Dennis Jones (President) and Patrick Kelly (Senior Associate & Director, National Information Center) of the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS).??


This publication consists largely of 50 color graphics reflecting NCHEMS analysis and 2005 data from such multiple sources as OECD, the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the National Center for Education Statistics, the U.S. Bureau of Justice, the U.S. Department of Education, GED Testing Service, and NCHEMS itself. NCHEMS concludes that this data set -- including information on international comparisons, U.S. demographic trends, U.S. education achievement levels, workforce education levels, and other variables -- calls for a dramatically expanded and more effective adult education and literacy enterprise in America. A short introduction and executive summary by the authors accompanies their compelling presentation.??


Although this document should not necessarily be taken to reflect conclusions of the Commission at this stage (its work is still in progress), the Commission is pleased to release it as a public service. Other materials developed for the Commission's April 17th meeting will be provided in the near future.


MOUNTING PRESSURES... is available in color PDF format at the CAAL website, www.caalusa.org.?Bound color copies may also be purchased directly from CAAL ($25 each plus postage, bheitner at caalusa.org for ordering instructions).?[Note: This is a large document best "read" in color. Persons able to print only in black and white or having a slow speed connection may do better to order it from CAAL.]?
