The National Literacy Act defines literacy as:

  1. An individual's ability to read, write and speak English

  2. To compute and solve problems at levels of proficiency necessary to function on the job and in society.

  3. To achieve one's goals and develop one's knowledge and potential.

Literacy is not the end product, but a means to a better life for each person, and that person's family, employer, and the community in which that person lives.
