I have spend the week in Denver, Colorado attending the Commission on Adult Basic Education (COABE) conference with my colleagues from Washoe County School District's RISE Academy for Adult Achievement. At the conference, the leaders at RISE Academy presented From Stagnation to Rise: The Restoration of an Adult Education Program. This session focused on RISE's process and lessons learned over the last year during the major reform of the Washoe's adult education school. The Prezi from the session can be found here and details the framework to restructure adult education programs and the results of RISE Academy's efforts.
