Join Us for Literacy Day at the Capitol

Tuesday, February 16, 2016

Please mark your calendars for February 16th, 2016 for Literacy Day at the Capitol. The theme for the day will be “1 in 6,” because 1 in 6 Georgians over 25 lack a high school diploma or a GED.

Adult literacy advocates from across Georgia will converge on the state capitol for the Annual Literacy Day at the Capitol. This is a great opportunity for those passionate about adult basic education, English as a Second Language, family literacy and health literacy to network and discuss these important issues with state leaders.
