Abstract: The ability of adult learners to set and pursue lifelong learning goals is affected by a variety of policy decisions made at the federal, state, and local levels. This panel session provided information on the ways that such policy decisions can affect access to adult basic education and ESL; adult secondary education and high school equivalency; workforce skills training; postsecondary education; and family and community learning. Presenters were Judy Mortrude (Center for Law and Social Policy); Tracy Noles (National Center for Families Learning); Amanda Bergson-Shilcock (National Skills Coalition); and Michele Diecuch (ProLiteracy).
