Oregon Pathways for Adult Basic Skills Transition to Education and Work.
Jun 10, 2009
Oregon has begun an initiative that seeks sustainable change in its adult education systems, using links to postsecondary education and training and One-Stop Centers. The state plans a series of courses at pre-bridge, bridge, and college/career readiness levels, with standard format lesson plans that integrate training needed for the state’s high-demand occupations.
The most innovative state policy work on adult basic skills education blends basic skills and English language services with postsecondary education and training, and includes proactive advisory services, college success courses, peer support, and other student support strategies.
