Abstract:
This action plan is the culmination of the National Literacy Summit held in Washington in February 2000. The summit produced a draft action plan that was refined with additional public comment. The final version was produced by staff of the National Institute for Literacy. It is a blueprint for action to reach a ten year goal...a system of high quality adult literacy, language, and lifelong learning services will help adults in every community make measurable gains toward achieving their goals as family members, workers, citizens, and lifelong learners.
