    Local, regional and national leaders gathered at Community College of Philadelphia to inform the creation of a national action plan to improve the skills of U.S. adults PHILADELPHIA, PA – On December 10, 2013, nearly 50 leaders in literacy, workforce development, research, postsecondary education, employment, and philanthropy braved a snow storm to engage in advising on national policy to address the country’s considerable need to raise the skills and knowledge of its workforce. Results from the latest international study of adult skills, Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), show that U.S. workers trail many other developed nations in foundational skills essential for both individuals and the nation to thrive. Presently, federal, state and local funding support education services (defined as one class per person) for only 3% per annum of the 36 million low-skilled adults in our country in need of these services. In order for the U.S. Department of Education to (1) better understand the challenges involved in improving these skills; (2) gather input from a wide range of stakeholders; and (3) inform development of a national response, the Secretary of Education has launched a national engagement process with a goal of developing an action plan by April, 2014, that will enable those overlooked by the current educational system to improve their workforce competencies and fully participate in our economy.
