On the commencement of new session, Ms. PAT Lawson North, the Executive Director said, “I am delighted to be a part of Vision Literacy. Vision Literacy has been working for over three decades in providing adults basic literacy skills and with the enormous support of our partners, instructors, donors, we have been able to drive sustainable transformation in the lives of adults with low literacy in the country”.
According to the U.S. Department of Education and the National Institute of Literacy, 32 million adults in the U.S. can't read. According to National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), Children whose parents have low literacy levels have a 72 percent chance of being at the lowest reading levels themselves. These children are more likely to get poor grades, display behavioral problems, have high absentee rates, repeat school years, or drop out.
