Guest editorial: Adult ed often starts with basics: reading

Another great story about teaching adults and immigrants to read, write and speak English. - - Donna Poisl

By Meg Nugent

Imagine how limited your life would be if you were an adult who could not read. Think about the basic things you could not do. Imagine how limited you would be if you could not speak English. And yet you must work, take care of kids, grocery shop, fix the car and pay bills.

The Nashville Adult Literacy Council sees this every day. We teach U.S.-born adults to read and English skills to adult immigrants, thanks to many volunteer tutors who sign up to help us.
