Literacy/Quality of Life in the United States.
Blai, Boris, Jr.
Investment in literacy upgrading can pay rich dividends in both quality of life for individuals and benefits to society. Literacy can become the gateway to a fuller understanding of ideas and responsible participation as citizens. Unfortunately, academic abilities of schooled youth are not keeping pace with the skills/knowledge requirements of existing and prospective jobs in the present-day economy. Under-preparation of youth wastes the nation's most precious resource--the productive potential of people. All responsible citizens must become advocates for higher levels of literacy throughout the nation and insist that basic skills be strongly emphasized at all levels of education. (RS)
