What’s wrong with America

We are becoming a nation that can’t or doesn’t read. We are an illiterate or semi-literate society.

Over 42 million American adults can’t read – the number is growing by 2 million a year.

Another 50 million only read at a fourth- or fifth-grade level.

Eighty percent of the families in the United States last year did not buy a book.
