Adult Literacy

Question: Why don’t adults who need help with literacy enroll in adult literacy classes?


30% Personal and family concerns

 27% Lack of confidence

13% Cost

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.
