All episodes are based off the question: "What's a commonly held belief in Literacy Education you passionately disagree with?"
More than 60 percent of all prison inmates are functionally illiterate.
One child in four grows up not knowing how to read.
43% of adults at Level 1 literacy skills live in poverty compared to only 4% of those at Level 5.
Kids who are read to every day are 1 year more literate than their peers.
