Lifelong Learning Month
February is Lifelong Learning Month in Missouri
Lifelong learning is the single most important investment an individual can make to become successful in life. More than 300,000 adults in Missouri do not hold a high school diploma. Limited education and workforce-readiness skills negatively affect an individual’s ability to earn a sustainable income. By improving these skills, the Adult Education and Literacy program adds to the earning potential of Missouri residents. Lifelong learning and adult education benefit families, employers and Missouri’s economy.
