Adult Education and Family Literacy


Our current and recent projects and partners in adult education and family literacy include:
Pennsylvania Bureau of Postsecondary and Adult Education

We serve as the data consultant for the Bureau of Postsecondary and Adult Education in the Pennsylvania Department of Education, in cooperation with the Institute for the Study of Adult Literacy at Penn State University. By The Numbers is responsible for compiling the statistics for all adult education programs in Pennsylvania, including statistics reported annually to the U.S. Department of Education.

Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13

We have worked with Lancaster-Lebanon IU 13 on an evaluation of Pennsylvania ESL programs; and projects to develop indicators of program quality and program improvement practices for adult basic and literacy education in Pennsylvania.
 
Institute for the Study of Adult Literacy

We cooperate with the Institute for the Study of Adult Literacy at Penn State University on data analysis for adult basic and literacy education programs for the Bureau of Postsecondary and Adult Education in the Division of Adult Education of the Pennsylvania Department of Education. We have also worked with the Institute on a project to identify work-based foundation skills for employees, basic skills certificate development, an evaluation of family learning centers operated by the Literacy Volunteers of America with funding from Verizon, an evaluation of the Queens Borough (New York) Public Library's video teleconferencing program, and an evaluation of Pennsylvania's statewide Educational Quality for Family Literacy Initiative.
 
Goodling Institute for Research in Family Literacy

We have worked with the Goodling Institute for Research in Family Literacy at Penn State on several analyses using Pennsylvania's statewide family literacy database, including studies of family participation and literacy gains; and a study of how Involvement in adult education and family literacy programs shapes women's social networks, social support, and mental health.

Center for Schools and Communities

We have worked with the Center for Schools and Communities on evaluations of Pennsylvania's Family Center Initiative, which was designed to encourage economic self-sufficiency for families through adult education, training, and employment; assure healthy development and healthcare services for children; and promote child development through effective parenting, early intervention, and outreach services.
