Adult education funding and training

What funding and resources does the U.S. Department of Education offer for adult education professionals?

The Division of Adult Education and Literacy (DAEL), which is part of the Department's Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education, administers programs that help American adults get the basic skills they need to be productive workers, family members and citizens.  The programs emphasize basic skills such as reading, writing, math, English language competency and problem-solving. 
Information on adult education for English Language Learners (ELL) is available from the National Clearinghouse on English Language Acquisition (NCLEA).
