In October, results from the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) study were released—the first seminal data about the literacy skills and competencies of adults in the U.S. in more than 10 years. How does this new information help further your day-to-day work and forward public policy favorable to the adult literacy and basic education field? Join us online via live webcast or in-person at the U.S. Conference on Adult Literacy to hear national presenters speak about the importance of the study. Receive tools, resources, tactics, and strategies for programs interested in using the PIAAC study as a way to advance your public policy agenda and to raise awareness.
