How Family Literacy Helps! Education is the key out of poverty!
In 1997, the poverty rate among children under age 6 whose best-educated parent had:
less than a high school degree was 62.5%; a high school degree was 29.2%; some college was 15.2%; and a college degree was 2.8%.
Even in 1997 statistics report that poverty and literacy rates are closely related. A family that obtains a college degree has positioned him/herself to provide a legacy of education within their family structure. Parents [Families] must place a high value on education and the privileges that acquiring it brings. The privilege of opportunity, self-sufficiency, can you think of others?
