The Need: Increasing literacy levels

The National Assessment of Adult Literacy (NAAL) estimates that 30 million adults in the U.S. –14% of the country's adult population – have only the most minimal ability to read and write in English.

I have so many students in my class who have tried and failed at a learning center. Sometimes when they enter my class they feel helpless and defeated. CASAS changes the way they learn. It gives what they learn MEANING because it gives every day situations in which to apply what they are learning. It's truly a wonderful program! ~ Lucy from Kansas
