Benefits of Literacy

In Colorado today, there are over 585,000 people aged 16+ with no high school diploma. That number will most likely grow dramatically as the high school drop out rate in the state is 32% and a dismal and discouraging 54% in the city of Denver. Long term we must identify the key issues to reducing this extremely high drop out rate. We all have a vested interest in education that produces graduates that become productive citizens.
