[A Barnraising for Reading: How Business Can Help the Right to Read Effort.]
Emery, Donald G.
Reading is the key to learning. Without basic reading skills, the individual is shut out of society in many ways. Illiteracy lowers his chances of employment, limits his knowledge in politics and current events, and limits his success in school. As all of these things affect the nonreading individual, so does his lack of productivity and lack of personal fulfillment affect our society as a whole. The solution to the reading problem in achieving the goal of national functional literacy requires total community involvement--by parents, schools, businesses, radio, television, libraries, and publishing companies. By communities becoming more involved in the individual, the individual, in turn, increases his involvement in the community, thus creating a better society for all. (AI)
