On a recent visit to the Dover Adult learning Center, Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut said the state has an obligation to help adults reach their fullest educational potential.
Edelblut touted the benefits of such facilities to help immigrants learn English or adults to earn a high school diploma.
“We have to help everybody get to the top of their game,” Edelblut said. “These are programs that help individuals — particularly individuals (coming) in from another country into the United States — to help them assimilate and become productive citizens in our communities. It helps students that have gotten out of our high school programs and didn’t get all of the education that we would want them to have to be successful. And we help fill in those gaps.”
