Domestic Disparities in Rudimentary Education: Illiteracy Close to Home.

Laina Blanton

Ansonio Mitchell

For our digital artifact we will be advocating awareness about the considerable demographic of American individuals suffering from a lack of elementary literacy and mathematics education. Moreover, we will edify how these shortcomings have ultimately disenfranchised many domestic households on the frontiers of job opportunities, personal banking practices, and commonplace errands such as grocery shopping. And while it is simple to picture American illiteracy as this blight solely impacting young children, it is arguably just as prevalent to fully developed adults with established lives. Going forward our topic will entail the statistics revolving the current regions where this is most concurrent, the level of fiscal privilege and public incentives provided to the noted demographics, as well as how society can collectively help to control the spread of it.

Also, with the aid of credible sources from scholarly and governmental research, we shall include the facts that are indicative of current percentages and in-depth analytics. Moreover, we shall use video imagery to convey our message and provide a profound perspective on the concern. We will show the compensation disparities between the demographics documented as illiterate, and those that have achieved the standard benchmark to be qualified as literate. We shall additionally look into the ill-taught stigmas behind them and develop a means to abate their social distribution, for we can help promote a society conducive of universally fair and empathetic treatment.
