National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week

There are no better advocates for adult education and literacy programs than the professionals that run those programs or learners that benefit from them. Set aside some time during National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week, September 22-28, to help raise awareness of the importance of these programs, funding for them or share the availability of these programs in your own community! Be sure to follow KET’s social media sites and link to them as we all observe this important week.
