Illiteracy Rate Drops In Kentucky

There's a bright spot of news for folks here in Kentucky.

A new study shows that more and more people in this county are illiterate. California, New York and Florida have all shown dramatic increases in illiteracy rates..

But here in Kentucky, and a handful of other states, the figures have improved..

Worldwide, the U.S. doesn't stack up too well in general.

Fourteen countries rank higher in reading ability than the United States including Finland, South Korea, Iceland and Canada.

    Thank you to all the teachers, reading tutors AND students that worked to drop the not-so-notable number.
