Five Least Literate Cities in the U.S.

Scary. From The Huffington Post. What do you guys think about this one?BOOKS Huff

September 8, was International Literacy Day. To bring awareness about the state of literacy, we’ve recycled this video from earlier this year that discusses a study of the least literate cities in the U.S.

Some cities in the U.S. don’t match up to the literacy of most fifth graders. The cities are as follows: Stockton (California), Bakersfield (California), Anaheim (California), El Paso (Texas) and Corpus Christi (Texas).

Live in one of these cities? Help make your city more literate! Volunteer to read at a school, or read to a young relative!
