Sequestration and Adult Education

From the National Coalition on Literacy


Alert: Action on Sequestration for Adult Education


On March 1st, Congress is set to allow dangerous and indiscriminate cuts to occur that would drastically reduce funding for adult education services provided through Title II of the Workforce Investment Act. These across-the-board cuts, known as “sequestration,” put the health, education, and safety of all Americans at risk.
According to the National Education Association, allowing sequestration to occur would result in 127,900 adult education students being cut from existing services and would result in 450 job losses for adult educators and practitioners.
What Can You Do? 
Tell your member of Congress: Take a Balanced Approach to Deficit Reduction and Preserve Funding for Adult Education.
Deadline: February 28
