Question: Why don’t adults who need help with literacy enroll in adult literacy classes?
30% Personal and family concerns
27% Lack of confidence
14% Not interested in organized education
16% Not interested in available courses.
Comment: I thought these reasons were interesting. I especially noted “lack of confidence,” at 27%. I’m willing to bet that this reason is part of many of the other reasons as well. RayS.
