Reading and writing are necessary but not sufficient conditions for literacy. Reading and writing both involve the construction of meaning via print and prior knowledge. Literacy entails both attitude and action with respect to reading and writing and is influenced by social, economic, political, and cultural conditions. Adult Basic Education and literacy are two significant constructs for adult learners who have not completed high school and who choose to increase their level of school achievement, possibly leading to a high school certificate. The purpose of this paper is to try and understand the relationship between literacy and adult basic education as educational experiences for the attainment of this goal.
