World Illiteracy

Allen and Scott: Illiteracy means people don't know how to read. Some places in the word affected by our problem are South Asia, Arab States, Sub Sahara Africa, and East Asia. More females in the world than males cannot read. This has been a problem for a long time. Our problem can be fixed by people by talking to the right people and making a plan. The Peace Corps is one group who is working on this problem. If no one fixes our problem even then more people will not know how to read. We learned that when parents can't read then their kids usually don't learn to read.

Allen: You need to read fact books and story books.

Allen: You need to read cook books.

Scott: Your parents need to know how to read so they can teach you how to read.
