State Literacy Resource Centers

The State Literacy Resource Centers, which were authorized by the National Literacy Act of 1991, are administered by the Office of Vocational and Adult Education. Congress recognized that high-quality instruction is the foundation of all education and that quality instruction is informed instruction. The State Literacy Resource Centers can help adult education practitioners across the nation find and access the most current materials in their specific issue areas.
