Hello everyone,

There are two updates I’d like to share with you on behalf of COABE. First, we are excited to report that Senator Reed (D-RI) and Senator Young (R-IN) have introduced the Strengthening Research in Adult Education Act (S. 1126)! This is one of the many policy issues that we have been working on with our champions on Capitol Hill and we are thrilled to have a bipartisan bill on adult education research introduced in the Senate. We are working with Senate staff to determine a strategy for getting co-sponsors and promoting the bill. We are also on the lookout for press releases and bill text from the Senators and can share those with the group as soon as they go “live”.

Additionally, Senator Young has agreed to co-lead the fiscal year (FY) 2022 adult education appropriations dear colleague letter with Senator Reed. It is great news that our appropriations letter will be bipartisan on the Senate side and we are thankful to both Senators for all their work to champion adult education. We expect the Senate letter to start circulating in the next day or so. The COABE field will be activating on the letter to request that their Members of Congress sign on to signal their support for increased adult education funding.

Thank you!

Sharon, thank you for posting this important update on bipartisan support for adult education in the Senate. Senator Reed and Senator Young are indeed superb champions for our field.

All, as Sharon notes, the text of the Strengthening Research in Adult Education Act is not yet available. You can read the remarks that Senator Reed gave when introducing the Act on the https://national-coalition-literacy.org/2021/04/bipartisan-support-for-adult-education-research/, where you can also find links to the presentations made at the Capitol Hill briefing, https://national-coalition-literacy.org/2021/04/literacy-to-leadership/, on Wednesday afternoon.

Hello everyone,
Yesterday, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies released their appropriations bill text. This update includes the funding levels for relevant programs to adult education.

The Good News:
Adult Education State Grants saw an increase of $63 million dollars, from $674.9 million to $738.7 million.

We are excited to see these funding increases – your voices are being heard! We'll be sending out a notice to the field shortly but wanted to share here now.

Thanks for all you are doing for adult education!
