Literacy can help communities in many ways. Low-income communities often have low rates of literacy for many reasons. Improving the schools in these areas can improve literacy, which in turn and help the community develop and grow. If students in the community earn a great education, they can break the cycle of poverty in their community.
Literacy can also help communities by improving the lives of individual families. Teaching people how to read can lead to family members getting better jobs and moving up through their companies. If individual families begin to learn and improve, the community may improve as a whole.
If an individual has strong reading and writing skills, he or she may be more inclined to become an entrepreneur or business owner. Opening new businesses in a community can improve the local economy and the local neighborhood. Literacy is an important tool for people to master. Rene Schillinger is highly education and is focused on helping people become literate. He consults with educators as well as schools to provide important tools and information.
