Op-Ed on Job Training by ProLiteracy President Featured in Huffington Post

An op-ed by David C. Harvey, president and CEO of ProLiteracy, was featured on the Huffington Post on August 30, 2011.

Harvey comments on the need to provide job training for the 30 million American adults who function at the lowest level of literacy, unable to read a news article written at the third grade level. He urges President Obama and Congress to ensure that any future jobs package includes funding for programs that directly serve this audience, to ensure that all Americans are prepared for our competitive workforce.
