On June 19 and 20, 1998, a NCSALL-sponsored conference entitled “The Impact of Welfare Reform on Adult Literacy Education” was held at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey. The program for June 19 featured three commissioned papers followed by small group discussion sessions. The papers were authored and presented by Deborah D’Amico, Alec Levenson et al., and Connie White et al. On June 20, small groups discussed the implications of welfare reform for adult literacy practice, research and policy. A recorder charged with preparing ‘minutes’ was assigned to each of the small groups. Below are summaries of the three commissioned papers, as well as themes from the small group sessions and recommendations of the conference.
