Despite our government’s efforts to improve education, we still have a large sector of society that remains unlettered, unable to either read or write very well. These unlettered individuals can barely figure out what a book says, and struggle while writing to fill out a job application. Unless we come up with a way to better educate our unlettered population, we risk having an entire generation of unaware and unread people that can barely write their own names.
Quiz: What is an unlettered person?
- He has not learned to read and write.
