Illinois Task Force Studies Improvements to Adult Education

NORMAL — Strengthening the transition from basic skills to post-secondary career training and increasing public-private partnerships are among the potential goals under consideration of a new statewide task force studying adult education.

That’s welcome news for Kerry Urquizo, director of adult education at Heartland Community College.

“Right now, we need to make more connections with workplaces and workplaces need to be more open to us as a pipeline,” said Urquizo.
