MORRILTON, Ark.— Arkansas Adult Education will host Arkansas’ Night In, a simultaneous open house at its 36 adult education centers around the state to raise awareness about adult education programs and the success of those who have graduated. UACCM Adult Education staff will be at three of the college’s four locations from 5-7 p.m. on Nov. 8 to discuss the programs and services offered at each facility. This event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
More than 35 million American adults struggle to read, write, do math, and use technology above a third-grade level. In Arkansas, 18 percent of the population need adult education and training. Adult education graduates are more likely to be employed full-time and minimum wage workers increased wages by 18-25 percent within 18 months of exiting an adult education program.
