Something to Think About - Please Think About This: Report on a National Study of Access to Adult Basic Education Programs and Services in Canada (1998)

This is the final report of a study undertaken in January 1996 by the Ottawa Board of Education (now the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board) under the direction of Joyce White, Manager of ABE/ESL programs.

The preliminary research phase clearly indicated the need for a re-assessment of current approaches to Literacy and Adult Basic Education. The second phase of the research, as discussed in this report, focused on conducting a thorough examination of Literacy policy and practice in Canada. The key questions guiding the research were whether Canadian adults in need of literacy level upgrading have reasonable access to programs and whether they can be assured that the programs they have access to can enable them to achieve their educational goals and, thus, better prepare them to pursue their employment aspirations.
