Through its 37 service delivery areas, the Office of Adult Education (OAE) promotes and provides adult education programs throughout the state of Georgia. Literacy programs are available to adults needing basic, general, or specialized skills instruction. The Office of Adult Education facilitates collaboration among state and local entities to improve adult education efforts.
The mission of the adult literacy programs is to enable every adult learner in Georgia to acquire the necessary basic skills — reading, writing, computation, speaking, and listening — to compete successfully in today's workplace, strengthen family foundations, and exercise full citizenship.
The Office of Adult Education administers the GED Testing Program and awards the GED diploma to successful GED test takers. It also facilitates cooperation among state and local entities for the purpose of increasing and improving adult literacy efforts in Georgia. Therefore, the Office of Adult Education has two primary roles: it provides direct services through the service delivery areas and Georgia's technical colleges, and it coordinates services with other organizations.
The Office of Adult Education's vision is a "Fully Literate Georgia" whose workers are exceptionally well prepared to compete in the global marketplace. OAE envisions this "Fully Literate Georgia" emerging as a world leader in economic development, and in the provision of educational programs and services that are seamless in delivery, responsive to the individual needs of students, and designed to overcome barriers to educational access and improve the quality of life of Georgia's citizens.
