With that act, the media and the American Public began to discover that the United States had a serious problem: Millions of its citizens are functionally illiterate. Subsequently, a great deal of attention has been given to pinning down exactly how many millions fall into this category and to deploring the situation while pointing accusing fingers in every direction -- the schools, the home environment, television, the Department of Education, and textbook publishers.This book is the first to take a clear analytical look at the facts and the serious implications of this complicated problem, placing it squarely within the context of this countrys history and current environment.

It also recommends far-reaching programmatic solutions rather than superficial quick fixes. It is a book for educators, politicians, the corporate community and everyone whos interested in the future of this country.
