US Department Of Education Spotlights Shifting Gears


2/28/2013

In its OVAE Connection weekly e-newsletter to education policymakers, practitioners, and advocates, the US Department of Education (DOE) announced the release of Strengthening State Systems for Adult Learners, an evaluation of the Joyce Foundation’s Shifting Gears project. OVAE, the DOE’s Office of Vocational and Adult Education, administers and coordinates programs that are related to adult education and literacy, career and technical education, and community colleges.

Too many workers lack the education and skills for higher level jobs. In 2007, Joyce launched Shifting Gears with the goal of increasing the number of adults who obtain credentials that employers value. Strengthening State Systems for Adult Learners evaluates state progress in implementing Shifting Gears programs and takes a look at challenges ahead.
