About this Blog

The National Coalition for Literacy engages NCL members, advocates, legislators and their staffs, researchers, and the media, in raising the priority of adult education and family literacy. We listen to you, report on the latest developments in Congress that impact adult education and family literacy, and expand our grassroots and grasstops base through social and mobile media.

We post frequent public policy updates, as well as key information and resources pertinent to the current federal public policy landscape. Additionally, we host blog discussions with NCL members who are federal advocacy experts during critical times for advocacy. We also feature advocates’ stories in Advocate Voices from the Field.

The opinions of guest bloggers are their own and do not represent the views or positions of the National Coalition for Literacy.

How to Participate:

Just post your comment or question in the “Comments” field. For a quick tour on how to post, click here.


This blog is moderated by the NCL Technology Coordinator, Jackie Taylor. NCL asks that all contributors keep comments within these few guidelines:

  • Comments and questions pertain to the topic of the blog posting.
  • General comments and questions pertain to federal level public policy and advocacy. (These may be questions that do not clearly pertain to any one of the blog postings.)
  • This is a professional forum, thus all discussion should be conducted in the spirit of curiosity and mutual respect, expected of professionals in adult education and literacy and related fields.
  • Please sign your comments with your name, affiliation, and email address. (If you wish to post anonymously, please email your post to Jackie Taylor (, NCL Technology Coordinator, who will post it without attribution, if appropriate.)

NCL will not post comments or questions that do not meet the above guidelines.

The NCL Advocacy Clearinghouse and Toolkit is a one-stop collection of public policy advocacy resources designed to assist you in advocating for adult education and family literacy at the federal level. We are pleased to offer this new blog to support your advocacy needs. Let us know how we can support you.
