Returning to Learning: Adults' Success in College is Key to America's Future

The rapid pace of technological change is dramatically altering the skills and educational qualifications necessary to job success and national economic well-being, a new report from the Emerging Pathways project argues. Funded by the Lumina Foundation for Education and directed by the University of Virginia's Curry School of Education, the report, Returning to Learning: Adults' Success in College Is Key to America's Future (32 pages, PDF), examines how the United States, which counts fifty-four million adults without a college degree among its labor force, can meet the challenge of an increasingly globalized economy and maintain its leading economic role in the twenty-first century.
