Professionalization in Adult Literacy Practice in Ontario

Professionalization in Adult Literacy Practice in Ontario reflects upon the findings of Essential Skills Ontario’s research on the topic as part of a knowledge exchange project funded by the Adult Learning Knowledge Centre of the Canadian Council on Learning. Because issues surrounding professionalization of adult literacy are complex and seem far down the road for Ontario’s adult literacy practitioners, the report suggests that discussions with practitioners, policy makers and other stakeholders are imperative to start scrutinizing the status quo diligently. It presents both challenges and opportunities, but also a serious and active debate that professionalization in adult literacy in Ontario needs to happen.
