This report presents the results of a survey project in which over two dozen adult education and literacy leaders responded to a series of questions about highest priority next steps for the adult education field in this time of scarce financial resources. The main section of the paper discusses four consensus or near-consensus areas of high priority importance--high intensity-managed enrollment instructional models, professional/staff development, use of technology, and creative funding. The other major section of the paper presents a menu of ideas more general and varied in nature, including discussion of whether to articulate core curriculum standards to the new GED. Appendices list survey questions and the respondents.
