Don’t forget the adults

The Hechinger Report has this story in today’s Washington Post about the inadequacies of the non-system in the U.S. for educating adults — 30 million of whom read English poorly.

Key point: “Adult education classes, a patchwork system operated by public schools, colleges and charities, have space for only a small fraction of those who need help learning to read, passing the GED test or learning basic English.”
