September is National Literacy Month

September is National Literacy Month, From Behind the Pen, National Literacy Month

Although March is National Get-Ready-to-Read Month, September rolls around with National Literacy Month. Reading is truly fundamental for continued literacy enhanced learning. Approximately 1 in 4 children in the United States grow up without learning how to read and 32 million adults in America can’t read.

Illiteracy is linked to poverty, crime, hunger, a burden on the health care system and dropping out of school. This month, join us in bringing awareness to illiteracy and making a difference to wipe out the ills that put a burden on literacy in our country! If we don’t bring an end to illiteracy, it will bring an end to us.
