Literacy is fundamental to a free society

The Hill – Bradley Blakeman

“A free society wants its citizenry to be literate and contributing. An authoritarian government needs just the opposite to survive. Literacy is the key that opens many doors and in America we cannot rest until every man, woman and child who are able can read and write. According to a study conducted in late April of 2014 by the U.S. Department of Education and the National Institute of Literacy, 32 million adults in the U.S. can’t read. That’s 14 percent of the population. Twenty-one percent of adults in the U.S. read below a 5th grade level, and 19 percent of high school graduates can’t read.”(more)
