Frightening Facts about US Literacy and Education

Frightening Facts about US Literacy and Education

This is a video from Literate Nation, a non-profit organization, that exemplifies a call to action movement begun by a group of citizens, educators, and scientists in 2012.

“Our Nation’s Educational System is in Crisis. That is the issue, pure and simple. Too many of our nation’s children have not been taught the basic mechanics of reading by the third grade. Since these students cannot read, or read at their grade level, they face frustration, failure, and hopelessness as they continue their schooling. Fully 67% of them will graduate from high school without age and grade appropriate literacy skills. And that doesn’t count the approximately 30% who drop out.”
