Lots Of Children Getting Left Behind

Tammy Bruce notes an inconvenient statistic:

I’ve noted here and on my show numerous times, the appalling fact that 50 percent of our college seniors are graduating functionally illiterate. Well, a new study reveals that a full 21 percent of the American public is illiterate, while 36 percent of people in Washington, DC are.

That’s right, 1 in 5 Americans and 1 in 3 residents of DC cannot comprehend a simple 500-word newspaper opinion piece, read a bus schedule, a map, nor can they fillout a job application.

As Tammy writes, “The short bus is getting really packed”.
