Advocacy for Adult Education

ACE represents the interests of Florida’s adult and community educators in the Legislature, the Department of Education and other state agencies.  ACE monitors legislation, rules and regulations, and encourages those which are beneficial to adult, literacy, technical, community and workforce education.

I implore each of you to help advocate for our students and our programs.  It is a MUST that we get the message out and get it out quickly.  Policy makers, legislators and educational leaders are now making changes fast.  If they do not know what we do, or how we help our students  become productive citizens, our programs will not survive.

We need you involved.  It will take the entire adult education community, including ACE of Florida, the practitioners, as well as the students and business partners, to make a difference this year.  Can we count on you to do your part?

If you think you don’t have time for action and advocacy this coming year, just think… if we do nothing, what will our future and that of our students be next year?

Get involved and explore our Advocacy resources.

Public Awareness

The ACE Foundation intends to create a positive awareness of the importance of adult education to potential students and communities throughout Florida. The ACE Foundation promotes the benefits of adult education related to economic development, self reliance and sense of personal and civic responsibility, ability to obtain higher paying jobs and support families.

Our community outreach will include efforts to obtain favorable media coverage of successful adult learners, recognition of the ACE Foundation as an authority on adult education, provide information and advice to the business community about improving workforce education, and bringing together business, community and education leaders to discuss the future of adult education.
