This is a cute thing that I picked up from Nancy Nall

I am told that literacy is defined as possessing an eighth grade reading level by the time you graduate from high school, I think that is a pretty horrendous expectation. We need to challenge our friends to read more and comprehend better.

On a side note the Libertarian Party of Allen County's blog only received a High School rating, as did Our Lady Rejoice's website, lol. And now without further banter, one more picture:

Literacy in America: Historic Journey and Contemporary Solutions
Edward E. Gordon and Elaine H. Gordon

What does it mean to be a literate person in America? That definition has changed over time. In 1900, for example, according to the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics, what it meant to be a literate person was for one to be able to write one’s own name. By the 1930s, in order to be considered literate, one had to have three or more years of schooling.

By World War II, it was necessary for a person to have four years of schooling. In 1947, the U.S. Bureau of the Census said that literacy required a person to have five or more years of school. In 1952, the Census Bureau tweaked the number up to six or more years of school, and in 1970, the U.S. Office of Education said that literacy required at least a ninth-grade education. Today, the U. S. Department of Education says that literacy requires a high school education plus.

(to read full review, follow link below)....The authors demonstrate that literacy education is not necessarily synonymous with schooling. Abraham Lincoln, as only a single example, attended school for less than one year.

The LPAC blog is intended to reach the broadest audience possible. My blog, on the other hand, is geared towards my hard core fans, and thus requires a genius reading level.
