Why Lexia Reading
WHY THE URGENCY FOR PARENTS TO FOSTER LEARNING IN THE HOME AND THE URGENT NEED FOR THE PROGRAM LEXIA ?
As nearly everyone knows, illiteracy is one of our most pressing national problems. Various studies have identified functional illiteracy as a cause of a number of serious social ills in nearly every State.
Studies have described reading levels as Level 5 down to Level 1 with Level 5 being the highest. People functioning at Level 1 literacy rates cannot complete the most basic tasks,
such as filling out a social security card application or reading a phone book. It has been reported by the National Adult Literacy Survey that about 45 million Americans fit this category (25% of the adult population.)
Many of the nation’s ills are directly related to illiteracy. few statistics:
1. 43% of adults at Level 1 live in poverty compared to only 4% of those at Level 5,
2. 3 out of 4 food stamp recipients perform in the lowest 2 literacy levels,
3. 90% of welfare recipients are high school dropouts,
4. 16 to 19 year old girls at the poverty level and below, with below average literacy skills, are 6 times more likely to have out-of-wedlock children than their reading counterparts,
5. Low literacy costs $73 million per year in terms of direct health care costs. A recent study by Pfizer put the cost much higher.
6. Illiteracy and crime are closely related. The U.S. Department of Justice states, “The link between academic failure and delinquency, violence, and crime is welded to reading failure.” Over 70% of inmates in America’s prisons cannot read above the fourth grade level.
7. Two-thirds of students who cannot read proficiently by the end of the 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare. The fourth grade is the watershed year.
