“…98% of American adults and 83% of adults worldwide were described as literate by Unesco….”
I’d really like a link to the source of these percentages. I’ve heard estimates far lower. I deal with entry level employees just out of high school all the time, and I can say for sure that 98% of them are NOT literate, by any measure. A few are so non-literate that they draw their name, rather than write it, and have to have the DMV materials (5th-grade level writing) read to them. Naturally, of course, they don’t pass the employment tests (no matter how much dumbed down), and certainly not the CHP (California Highway Patrol) test. No CHP test, no job.
About 14 percent of U.S. adults won’t be reading this article. Well, okay, most people won’t read it, given all the words that are published these days to help us understand and navigate the increasingly complex world.
But about 1 in 7 can’t read it. They’re illiterate.
Statistics released by the U.S. Education Department this week show that some 32 million U.S. adults lack basic prose literacy skill. That means they can’t read a newspaper or the instruction on a bottle of pills.
