Presented at their April 2007 meeting, this collection of papers was developed to inform the thinking of the National Commission on Adult Literacy. The collection reflects the ideas, insights, cautions, and recommendations of a group of 102 education and literacy leaders, all indicated by name and affiliation. The broad challenge was to "think outside the box" and imagine systemic changes that would be required to expand adult education and literacy service beyond the 3 million or so presently served in publicly funded programs to many times that number. Note: this information "does not necessarily reflect conclusions of the National Commission", but is "presented as a public service".
