Raising the Adult Literacy Rate in Cleveland

Featured Audio

When you talk about literacy it means more than just words, it includes math literacy too.  Many adults in Cleveland struggle with both words and numbers.  This low literacy level can prevent them from acquiring or keeping jobs.  Now literacy advocates and organizations are coordinating efforts with job training programs to put struggling adults on a path toward education and employment.
