Petition Background (Preamble):
The Pennsylvania Economy League (PEL) has recommended transferring governance and oversight of WIA Title II Adult Education and Family Literacy and Act 143 funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Bureau of Adult Basic and Literacy Education, to the Department of Labor and Industry, Bureau of Workforce Development Partnerships.
The Pennsylvania Association for Adult Continuing Education (PAACE) has responded to Governor Rendell. See that document at www.paacesite.org.
