Dr. Margaret Patterson will be presenting a session called "Adult Non-Participation in Education: Detouring from the Pathway".
In the era of WIOA legislation, the need for adults to be prepared for family-sustaining careers is acute. Yet millions of Americans have stopped their educational experiences, detouring from potential career pathways without completing high school or further education. PIAAC-USA data provide numerous explanations for the detour. This session will share characteristics, assessed skill levels, and other findings on adult non-participants in education. Session participants will have opportunities to discuss important implications for recruiting non-participants.
