Breaking the Cycle of Illiteracy

Illiteracy easily crosses from one generation to the next. Children raised in homes where parents and other family members have poor reading skills are less likely to have the reading materials and encouragement they need to reinforce solid reading habits. Adults who cannot read were once children who did not get a chance to learn how. A child who cannot read is a child lost. Family literacy programs confront this social challenge.
