New York, NY, 9/4/07 -- The National Commission on Adult Literacy
today released ADULT EDUCATION AND POSTSECONDARY SUCCESS by Steve
Reder of Portland State University and the National Center for the
Study of Adult Learning and Literacy. The policy brief was presented
at the Commission's third meeting on August 20, 2007. It examines GED
holders in comparison to their counterparts who have received a high
school diploma as well as those with no high school credential. The
comparisons are made in terms of long-term postsecondary education
outcomes. The author makes numerous recommendations for expanding and
restructuring the adult education system, with the goal of college
readiness and success in mind. [September 4, 2007, 29 pages, publ.
