Current Issues

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.

The NCL’s priority issue for 2019 is the 2020 Census. Visit the 2020 Census page for information and resources.

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 fact sheets and organized links to other key fact sheets and brief resources in the same topic areas.  The research and fact sheets listed here will help you show legislators how adult education connects to their priorities. New fact sheets and summaries will be posted as they become available.
