Even among college students, significant numbers lack prose, document, or quantitative adult literacy. These are startling figures. Increasingly, our world demands complex literacies… in problem solving, decision making, using data, and understanding information. The GED Academy has developed essential adult literacy education to address the complex issues of adult basic education and adult literacy programs. This initiative focuses on bringing fundamental skills, including reading, writing, mathematics, and critical thinking skills, to undereducated adult learners, primarily at the adult secondary education level.
