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. We all have a vested interest in education that produces graduates that become productive citizens. Adult Education programs and English as a Second Language programs give adults a second chance to earn the credentials they need to improve their life opportunities.
