Summary
"University of Texas recently conducted a survey of adults throughout the country which showed that more than 23 million people lack the basic ability to function in society. Millions of these people are not able to perform simple tasks, such as addressing an envelope or determining how much their employers owe them in pay. In large part, their inability to function is rooted in their inability to read. We could hope that these people are mostly older people and that the schools are gradually improving our citizens' ability to read. Test results, however, seem to show the opposite. Scores on the verbal part of the Scholastic Aptitude Test have declined 44 points since 1962, with the greatest decline being experienced this past year"--Page 1
