September 8, 2007, New York, NY -- The National Commission on Adult
Literacy has released a new paper, this one by Tony Peyton of the
National Center for Family Literacy. Titled FAMILY LITERACY IN ADULT
EDUCATION: The Federal and State Support Role, this special
perspectives paper (15 pages) was prepared for the August 20 meeting
of the Commission. The paper contains an Executive Summary and four
major sections: (1) Making the Case: Why Provide Family Literacy
Services; (2) Federal Support for Family Literacy; (3) Examples of
State Family Literacy Initiatives; and (4) Issues & Recommendations.
Among the five recommendations made by the author is that serious
national and state attention should be given to the collection of
comparable data about family literacy services, program types,
funding, legislative provisions, and enrollments across the states,
as well as research to fully demonstrate program outcomes. The paper
is available at http://www.nationalcommissiononadultliteracy.org/
