Houston has an ambitious new plan to tackle 'silent crisis' of low adult literacy

         Charlie Zong, Staff writer, THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE,  JuUpdated: July 7, 2021 10:44 a.m.

Cindy Estrada, who immigrated to Houston in 2007, said she spent years working at a cafe while struggling to learn English. When Estrada enrolled at EastSide University, her teacher, Jackie Aguilera, tailored a plan of ESL and High School Equivalency classes to enable her to go to college. 

After Estrada moved to west Houston, she drove an hour a day to EastSide rather than switch to nearby schools unfamiliar with her goals.
