Adult Education Week

Last night, the Citizenship class attended the MUSD Board meeting
The board passed a proclamation in support of Adult Education Week.
Li Jiayan talked about studying Citizenship at Milpitas Adult School.

Adult Education Week: March 9-13, 2009
California State Consortium for Adult Education (CSCAE) offers great promotional materials to raise awareness about the importance of adult education. Here is an exerpt from the 2009 pdf:

Adult Ed Week is five days, Monday through Friday. You may want to have an event each day, even if it’s just a short ceremony that honors worthy students and teachers.

Schedule a different event for each day of adult ed week:\

  • Monday: “New Citizen of the Year” recognizes a Citizenship student.
  • Tuesday: “Comeback Student of the Year” recognizes a high diploma or Adult Basic Education student.
  • Wednesday: “Older Adult Student of the Year” honors an older student.
  • Thursday: “Family of the Year” recognizes a family involved in Family Literacy or Parent Ed.
  • Friday: Schedule an Open House. Invite former teachers and students, potential new students, and local educational decision-makers to tour the school.

These are just a few thoughts to get you started. From past experience, we know that all of these will strike a chord with your local media. is hosting a new series: ESL Lessons for Women's History Month. Today's Hera & Hero: Aung San Suu Kyi.
