Adult education impacts many issues that are important to legislators and to the people they represent. We must help legislators understand the important role adult education can play in addressing these issues.

NCL has gathered current research summaries and reports in topic areas important to adult education advocacy. NCL has also developed a series of 1-2 page factsheets and organized links to other key factsheets and brief resources in the same topic areas.  The research and factsheets listed here will help you show legislators how adult education connects to their priorities. New factsheets and summaries will be posted as they come available.
