    1. I was not aware of the illiteracy rates in Australia beforehand. I googled it and the estimate is that 44% of Australian adults don’t have the functional literacy skills they need to cope with the demands of everyday life and work. This statistic is much higher then I would have imagined.

    2. Reducing illiteracy is an especially complicated task. To reduce the rates of illiteracy in Australia, school based initiates could be arranged. Within schools, personalized learning approaches are effective. If struggling students are identified early, schools can provide specific support to these students.
