To Ensure America's Future: Building a National Opportunity System For Adults - This report is the first comprehensive examination of linkages between community colleges and adult basic education, adult secondary education (including GED) and pre-collegiate English as a second language. The study looks at the scope and funding of the adult education services provided by community colleges, adult education studentsí transitions to postsecondary education, the obstacles to those transitions and how they can be addressed. Examples are given on how states are providing linkages, and the report recommends ways community colleges, adult education programs, states and the federal government can strengthen these linkages to further national economic and social interests. A 14-page executive summary also is available. (Council for Advancement of Adult Literacy, February 9, 2005)...
