    Figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics show that 44% of Australian adults don’t have the functional literacy skills they need to cope with the demands of everyday life and work. (31 Mar 2023)

    This statistic surprised me considering the high standard of the education system provided to Australians at a young age. Therefore, this shows that there is still work to be done to achieve higher literacy rates and I aim to work towards this by raising awareness to this issue and bringing others’ attention to the fact that not everyone has the same skills as others. Like me if I had not done the research to answer this discussion question, most people are unaware that there are still Australians among us who have not been equipped with necessary litarary tools required to thrive in today’s world.
