    • Do you know the illiteracy rates in your country?
    • How could you reduce illiteracy rates in your community? (school, university, or city)

    I didn’t know the literacy rates in New Zealand, after googling it I found out that only 45% of adults had the literacy skill of Levels 1 and 2 which are ages between 15 and 17.

    To reduce illiteracy rates in the community we could promote literacy programs so we can extend the skills of the people that are already literate. We could also make more compulsory programs for primary school kids to allow kids to have those skills at a young age, we could make these be fun activities so the younger kids are more engaged.
