Literacy in America


"Illiterate and semiliterate Americans are condemned not

only to poverty, but also to the powerlessness of

incomprehension. Knowing that they do not understand

the issues, and feeling prey to manipulative over-

simplifications, they do not trust the system of which they

are supposed to be the masters. They do not feel

themselves to be attractive participants in our republic,

and they often do not turn out to vote."
