Adult Basic and Family Literacy Education

The Division of Adult Education administers federal and state adult basic and family literacy funds. Adult basic and family literacy education programs funded by the Division of Adult Education provide a full range of services that support Pennsylvanians in developing basic skills that are necessary to participate fully in the education of their children, find and keep family-sustaining employment, or obtain a high school equivalency credential. The Division of Adult Education also oversees high school equivalency testing in Pennsylvania, and provides professional development for adult education and family literacy program staff, including training for volunteer tutors of adult education.
