History very clearly shows, in all the world’s industrialized nations as workers become better educated, they enjoy upward social mobility. Education always has been the tool for rising above poverty, disease, and misery. A family’s value for continuing education inspires the children to continue in school all the way through university. As each generation of a family becomes better educated, the whole family advances together.
Workers enrolled in adult education move up in the workplace while setting very powerful examples for their families. As adult education builds their skill with English, mathematics, and money management, workers advance on the job and they are able to provide well for their families. Simply as a realistic matter, a worker who speaks and reads English, who calculates quickly and accurately, and who understands the company’s values and expectations is far more valuable to the company than the worker who simply shows up and just does his job.
