Despite our government’s efforts to improve education, we still have a large sector of society that remains unlettered, unable to either read or write very well. These unlettered individuals can barely figure out what a book says, and struggle while writing to fill out a job application. Unless we come up with a way to better educate our unlettered population, we risk having an entire generation of unaware and unread people that can barely write their own names.
Quiz: Why might someone be unlettered?
- They never learned how to read or write.
- They were never very good at any sports.
- They were caught doing something illegal.
