AALPD advocates for increased funding for professional development that supports the adoption and implementation of the AALPD PD Policy Recommendations on local, state, and national levels. Advocacy objectives, ways to become involved, and four main areas for action directed at building support for adult literacy professional development are listed below. Please follow the links for more information.
AALPD's professional development policy advocacy activities are updated on this area of the AALPD website as needed. AALPD supports the Educate and Elevate Campaign to advocate for full funding to meet all the objectives of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). Educate and Elevate is a joint effort of various adult literacy and education organizations and is spearheaded by COABE and the National Council of State Directors of Adult Education.
