Adult Literacy – Why It’s Important

ABEAt Broward Community Schools we believe that everyone deserves an education and the tools to improve their literacy, no matter the age. That’s why we’re happy to promote adult literacy and all the benefits that our students see when they improve their reading and writing skills.

Increased Employment Benefits

There can be a lot of different reasons why someone’s education or literacy level may not be where they want it to be. Sometimes it’s because of a lack of access or because of work or other situations that were more important to them. It’s absolutely nothing to be ashamed and we offer adult education classes to bring you back to speed.

An important benefit to improving your literacy is that you’re more likely to see improvements when it comes to your employment. People that can read and write at an expected or better level are more likely to find employment and more likely to earn better-paying jobs. For those who will be juggling classes and current jobs, we do offer online classes.

General Knowledge

Another crucial benefit to understand is that a person’s literacy can directly impact general knowledge in their everyday life. Being able to read the names of streets is just as important as being able to fill out information in important documents. Every single one of our instructors at our Broward Community Schools understands that not having to struggle with everyday tasks such as these can make a world of difference in someone’s life.

Application

While the goal of our adult literacy classes is to have students walk away with a firm understanding of basic reading and writing skills, we also believe in putting those newfound skills to work. Students are encouraged to take what they’ve learned and apply it to all aspects of life.
