Adult Basic Education is an academic program intended to provide you with meaningful learning opportunities. Census information reveals a need for Adult Basic Education services in all Minnesota cities and counties. Therefore, a delivery system of ABE providers has been established for statewide access to literacy services.
Adult Basic Education is delivered statewide at over 500 sites located in public schools, workforce centers, community/technical colleges, prisons/jails, libraries, learning centers, tribal centers, and non-profit organizations. Programs have voluntarily formed ABE "consortia" (52 administrative units throughout the state) to maximize efficiency and to share resources.
