The U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics conducted national adult literacy assessments in both 1992 and 2003.
They were designed to judge literacy proficiency for the nation and for large sub-groups.
The results showed that 14 percent of the adults did not have more than the most simple of literacy skills.
Paula Faulkner says she is seeing examples of this in her role as volunteer literacy coordinator for Southeastern Community College.
