Wage Trajectories for Adult Basic Literacy Skills Program Participants vs. Nonparticipants

During the 10-year period of the study, participants showed mean income gains of 53 percent (in constant 1997 dollars) as compared to an income drop of 2 percent for nonparticipants. – See more at The Case for Investment in Adult Basic Education.

According to the LSAL study report, “This large overall difference suggests that adult basic literacy skills program participation may be central to sustained income growth for this low-education population.”
