Thank You For Your Membership in CCAE

Thank you for being one of over 3,223 supporters of Adult Ed who have signed up to receive important information about the current dismantling of the State's Adult Education program that has been in existence since 1856. The first class was held in the basement of St. Mary's Cathedral on Grant Avenue in San Francisco. Since that time, the Adult Education program grew to serve over 1.2 million students. Now, statewide enrollments are estimated to be down to 600,000 students and the total is continuing to drop each year.

By joining this email group you will be receiving information on what is happening both locally and at the state level that is affecting Adult Education. Honestly, we are expecting most news will be bad UNLESS we act in a coordinated way to express to decision makers the importance of Adult Education and how their decisions are having detrimental effects on the program. We need your voice!


In these emails you will not only get the status of Adult Ed but you will also, at times, be asked to act. This could mean sending a letter to your representatives, calling their offices, attending a school board meeting or possibly traveling to the capital to voice your concerns and opinions directly to legislators while they meet in their committees.

The battle ground to save adult education continues to reside within the Legislature.  Continue to make calls and send letters and emails to your legislators. Be sure to copy our office at or fax 866-941-5129 so we may present hard copies when lobbying the issue. Please encourage others to join the Supporters of Adult Education campaign to keep the pressure on the Legislature to save adult education.
