US Not Doing Enough for Adult Learners

According to Government Accountability Office (GAO) report the US is not doing enough to help its non-English speakers in part due to lack of  coordination of efforts, effective training, and access to classes.  It is doubted that any stimulus monies will be used to increase funding for English language learning.  Contrarily, funds seem to be on the decrease with cuts in budgets and even charging for classes as in California.   Tax breaks are being discussed for qualified ELL teachers to encourage them to work with adults.
