Adult education gives me independence

Everyone can have a chance to speak up for themselves and have a chance in life. Everyone comes from different backgrounds and has the same rights.

Ability board (adult learning) gives me and others more chances to learn. Adult education gives me independence. I get up and do things on my own. It's given me more confidence.  It's given me more opportunities to try different things out.

I believe the government are doing the best they can for me. But there could be more support in school, don’t have someone who is struggling with a mild learning difficulty falling behind in school.
