Israel Mendoza, the director of adult education for the State of Washington, introduces The Annual Review of Adult Learning and Literacy, Volume 2, by quoting Allan Quigley's admonition that we “Become literate about literacy." (p. xi) Indeed, this is what this series of reports is all about.  Its target audience is policymakers, scholars and practitioners of adult basic and secondary education, and English to speakers of other languages.             Volume 2 actually sets some precedents by continuing a pattern begun in Volume 1 to, as the editors state in their introduction, "produce a journal of record for the field of adult learning and literacy..." (p. xv)  This pattern begins, according to editors John Comings, Barbara Garner and Cristine Smith, with a chapter that reviews "significant developments in the field during the year (in this case 1999),  includes a chapter describing the adult literacy system of another country (here Canada), and provides an annotated bibliography on a broad topic of current interest to the field (here, organizational development).” (p. xv)... (preview truncated at 150 words.)
