Hello, CCAE, and happy summer to you all! As we open the new CCAE fiscal and program year, I'd like to take a minute to acknowledge and thank the Adult Education icons who are transitioning off our CCAE Executive Board. It's hard to imagine a group of people more knowledgeable, strategic, and passionate about California Adult Education.

Whenever I see the red shirts in support of adult education worn by our students and faculty at the San Mateo Adult School on Tuesdays, I think of Cynthia Eagleton. Perhaps I do so because as a new administrator at San Mateo Adult School back in 2014, Cynthia first introduced herself to me wearing the red shirt and explained to me the school’s Tuesday tradition of “Wear Red in Support of Adult Ed.”  

The San Mateo’s Federation of Teachers Union, AFT Local 4681, established the tradition in the days of categorical flexibility, when adult school funding was slashed statewide and fiscal control of the budget taken out of the hands of the adult schools. The red shirts represented a concrete visual, a colorful show of the strength in numbers of the supporters of adult education in their fight to restore equitable funding and services to its students. Read more >
