 Did you know…?
28% of the metro Atlanta’s population have low literacy skills (including both native and non-native speakers of English).
Adults with low literacy skills are less likely to read to their children. Children who haven’t  developed basic literacy skills when they enter school are 3 to 4 times more likely to drop out.
US business and industry leaders estimate spending  $600 million a year on remedial reading, writing, and math classes  for employees.
