Hello everyone,

Today, the House of Representatives passed a bill (H.R. 7309https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/7309/text?q=%7B%22search%22%3A%5B%22h.r.+7309%22%2C%22h.r.%22%2C%227309%22%5D%7D&r=3&s=4) to reauthorize the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), the law through which Federal funding for adult education flows.  Thanks to your advocacy and engagement with members of Congress, this legislation contains several of COABE’s recommendations, including:

  • Authorizing an innovative pilot performance accountability system, which will enable programs to better measure outcomes and demonstrate all the good work they are doing;
  • Providing a dedicated increase in the amount programs can spend on professional development; and
  • Supporting the development of improved credentials and quality standards for adult educators to enhance career pathways and ensure effectiveness of adult education instruction.

Representative Brenda Lawrence (D-MI) offered an amendment to the bill that clarifies that the pilot accountability system is an alternative to the National Reporting System, ensuring that programs participating in the pilot would not have to report through both systems. This amendment was included in the final bill, which passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 220-196.

Have a wonderful evening,

Sharon Bonney
