It connects the objectives of literacy education with broader areas of social welfare, including health, employment and political and economic empowerment. The second volume in a new annual series, this unique publication for practitioners in the field of adult learning and literacy collects in one yearly volume the best new knowledge and practice advances identified by the prestigious, Harvard-based and federally-funded literacy center.
