Why '30 percent of america' is illiterate....

because our news writers are also illiterate. Awesome that they make an article about illiteracy and then can't read it to put the right heading on abcnews.com...

still wrong as of now.

Literacy Advocates Say Poverty, Education, Language Play Role in Illiteracy

About 30 million people -- 14 percent of the US population 16 and older -- have trouble with basic reading and writing. Correlating factors that were explored in a new government report include poverty, ethnicity, native language background, and disabilities.

Because the parents don't make sure their kids can read by the time they enter the first grade. They should know how to at least read a childrens book by the time they even get a public grade school.
