- Governor Rendell and PA state legislators
- United States of America
Due to the current economic climate, state revenues for 2009/2010 have fallen far short of expectations, and revenue projections for 2010/2011 are bleak; as a result, your state legislators are considering cuts in funding for adult and family literacy for 2010/2011.
Funding cuts would result in fewer learners served and fewer learner transitions to post-secondary education/training and/or the workforce; moreover, any cuts would result in growing unemployment as educators, administrators and support staff would inevitably lose their jobs.
The Pennsylvania Association for Adult Continuing Education (PAACE) has responded to Governor Rendell and state legislators. See that document at www.paacesite.org.
We, the undersigned, call upon the Governor and Pennsylvania state legislators to ensure that the Bureau of Adult Basic and Literacy Education, as an education program and workforce partner, remains funded in 2010/2011 at or very near the 2009/2010 level of funding.
The Support funding for Adult and Family Literacy petition to Governor Rendell and PA state legislators was written by Lori Keefer and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
