The Charter Schools Agenda in Tallahasee
One of the bills,SB 1162, creates “family charter academies,” a new class of publicly funded, privately run schools, that would allow parents to attend school with their children. Bringing an integrated approach to adult education, the schools would “assist adults and parents in setting and obtaining goals for helping their children with homework, obtaining a job, enrolling in vocational training, or earning a GED certificate.”
How Nonprofits Make Data Fun and Informative
Whether they are bringing attention to an important cause, explaining their internal operations, or demonstrating the impact of their work, nonprofits can use infographics to present data in a way that is far more engaging and efficient than what could be conveyed with words alone.
These events are being organized by local planning committees comprised of area adult education and literacy programs, libraries, the parks and other community stakeholders.
Many of our literacy programs in areas other than those listed above are also celebrating Literacy Month! Click on the links below to learn more about additional literacy celebrations throughout Florida!
We hope you will attend one of the events referenced above to help recognize the importance of adult and family literacy in Florida. One in five Floridians is functionally illiterate. This means they cannot read their mail, complete a job application or read a book to a child. For more literacy stats, click here.
