According to the US Department of Education, 19% of high school graduates cannot read! Most literacy programs focus on early childhood or primary aged children. My objective is to keep the focus on literacy programs throughout the end of high school and even in the workplace. Reading and writing are critical skills that need to be promoted throughout all levels and all subjects in education.
