The Conference was deep and powerful.
An AEM post on the conference is coming soon.
Cuts and reform in California Adult Education are part of a larger puzzle affecting every piece of Public Education in the US. To understand what is happening in Adult Education in California - and to influence it in a positive direction - we need to understand what is happening elsewhere - and we need historical context.
Historical context is what Kristen provided at our panel discussion. Kristen is a lead ESL teacher at West Contra Costa Adult School. She is a founding member of COSAS - Communities Organized to Support Adult Schools, a group that formed in response to the cuts six years ago and has met weekly since. She authors the Save Your Adult School blog, a priceless repository of facts and insight about Adult Education.
