Illinois Community College Board Looks to Boost Adult Education

ILLINOIS (RFD) — The Illinois Community College Board is turning to billboards to urge more adults to help more than 4 million Illinoisans with key education needs.

Community College Board Deputy Director Jennifer Foster says the “Do it for You, Do it for Them” campaign will help adults who lack a high school diploma or have a language other than English as their primary language.

Foster says the change adult education offers is game changing.

Adult education programs not only pave the way for a G-E-D but adult literacy programs, English as a Second Language instruction, and college and career preparation.
