Learn about potential changes in Federal support for adult education: what they mean for New Jersey, and what they mean for advocacy. March 22, 2018. 11:00 AM to noon.
Art Ellison (New Hampshire's Director of Adult Education and longtime adult education advocate) will review what is happening at the federal level in terms of adult education funding. Although there is currently an effort to increase funding, it is also possible that funding will be significantly reduced. Art will discuss key points of the legislative process/schedule to keep in mind while planning advocacy efforts.
Hal Beder and Barry Semple (of NJALL) will review what these potential changes mean for adult education in New Jersey and the urgent need for coordinated advocacy across the state.
There will be built-in time to share ideas and ask questions.
