What is Literacy?
The National Literacy Act defines literacy as:
An individual's ability to read, write and speak English; To compute and solve problems at levels of proficiency necessary to function on the job and in society; 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
