ADULT BASIC EDUCATION CENTER

Washington-Irving School, Madison Street, Syracuse, NY

The Adult Basic Education program established at Washington-Irving School in 1965 was an early local response to President Johnson's declaration of a war on poverty.  The goal of the program was to offer basic education and high school equivalency classes to disadvantaged adults in the Syracuse metro area.  In all, I worked as a teacher and counselor at Washington-Irving for more than ten years.

Despite moving to Jackson, MS, in 1983, I have maintained contact with a few of my former colleagues on the staff at the ABC Center.  Others, though, have become "lost" over the intervening 20 years, and this web site represents an effort to permit me and others with an interest in the school to become re-acquainted with those who were involved in the early years of this program.  What follows is a listing--culled solely from my imperfect memory--of former staff members.  If any of those listed--or a friend or relative--should come across this page, I hope they will contact me.
