The Gift of Literacy
The cost of illiteracy to American taxpayers and businesses is $225 billion dollars for crime, loss of tax revenue due to unemployment wages, unemployment, welfare and other government assistance. In addition, low literacy adds $230 billion to the annual cost of delivering healthcare in the United States. Hosts Henna Hundal and Asya Gonzalez investigate the growing epidemic of illiteracy causing irreparable damage to our society. They interview career strategist, Carol Christen, author of What Color is Your Parachute for Teens? to find out how young people can discover their strengths, design a promising future, and plan for a dream job. The 3rd edition of the book features fresh updates on the specific challenges of today’s job-market and advice on information interviewing, social media, internships, and more. Reading and researching are key ingredients to this success. Low literacy and communication skills have been identified in studies as major contributors to general conduct disorders, psychiatric disorders, criminal behavior, and adolescent suicide.
