The National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) began to eradicate poverty in 1992 through education for families. The Learn To Earn Toolkit was created in response to the report “Are They Really Ready to Work: Employers’ Perspectives on the Basic Knowledge and Applied Skills of New Entrants to the 21st-Century U.S. Workforce.” This collaborative report includes surveys from 2006 with a dozen human-resources and executive personnel. The survey aimed to identify essential skills, as well as skills that were commonly lacking in their workplaces.
