The author provides a comprehensive discussion of the political, economic, curricular, and instructional issues relevant to workforce education for Latinos with low levels of literacy and formal education. Of particular significance is an examination of recent federal legislation that has impacted Latino adults who are unemployed, displaced, and/or seeking to advance personally and economically.

Instructors, as well as administrators and policymakers, will benefit from the succinct yet comprehensive discussion of federal policies, best practices in classroom instruction for bilingual adults, and program assessment and accountability. This study is most timely given the current social and demographic realities of this country as well as the changing economy of the 21st century, and is a powerful voice for Latino adults seeking to better their lives through education.
