Stand Up for Adult Education 2: Pima College Adult Education

What is the value of Adult Education?
Why is it important
to our communities, state, and country?

In 2003, faced with a budget deficit, the Arizona State Legislature recommended complete elimination of state funding for adult education and family literacy. The crisis marked the begining of a remarkable learning process about government and civic participation.

Kudos to Pima College Adult Education for their action to effect positive change on the state-level! Video (must see!)

Here is a Sample Letter to an Elected Official from the Arizona Association for Lifelong Learning.
