New grant funded through the Institutes for Education Sciences

A new grant has been awarded from the Institutes for Education Sciences, Career Pathways Programming for Lower-Skilled Adults and Immigrants:  A Comparative Analysis of Adult Education Providers in High Needs Cities.

 Many adult education providers seek to develop career pathway programs that build low-skilled adult learners' core skills (e.g., math, reading)in preparation for specific careers or fields (e.g., health care). In this project, representatives of adult education programs in Chicago, Miami, and Houston will work with researchers to describe how providers in each city integrate career pathway components into their services. This information will help programs understand and improve practices as well as create the foundation for subsequent collaboration and research.

 This grant is in partnership with the Goodling Institute for Research in Family Literacy (Esther Prins & Carol Clymer), Houston Center for Literacy (Sheri Foreman Elder), Miami-Dade County Public Schools (Mark Needle), and Chicago Citywide Literacy Coalition (Rebecca Raymond).
