Trump, Make Adult Education a PriorityJanuary 17, 2017 | :
by Don Block
Donald Trump was elected president with the votes of millions of disenfranchised and unemployed workers who feel that they are not sharing in the country’s economic prosperity. One method of bringing this group back into the mainstream of working America is as old as the American dream itself, and that is education.
While the value of higher education is widely understood, our nation has overlooked another part of the educational pipeline for far too long. I’m referring to adult basic education.
