Pew Report  “Philadelphia’s Poor”

Education and connecting to opportunity in the city

 

Join us for the next Quarterly Meeting of the Philadelphia Adult Literacy Alliance!

The meeting will feature a presentation on the findings from a new Pew Charitable Trust Report on Philadelphia’s Poor.

Poverty is one of Philadelphia’s most enduring problems. At 25.7 percent, the poverty rate is the highest among the nation’s 10 largest cities. About 400,000 residents-including roughly 37 percent of the city’s children under the age of 18-live below the federal poverty line, which is $19,337 in annual income for an adult living with two children. And nearly half of all poor residents are in deep poverty, defined as 50 percent below the federal poverty line.  According to the Pew study, adults aged 25 – 64 whose educational attainment is a high school diploma or less make up 67.7% of those living in poverty in Philadelphia.

Explore what these findings mean for the adult learners we serve, and the work we do as adult education providers and practitioners.

We look forward to sharing with you the progress made on the Alliance project, and updates on the City’s Workforce Strategy and Community Schools initiative.

Lunch will be served!
