Education Statistics

  • 33% of children in California will not finish high school.
  • More than 20% of adults read at or below fifth grade level
  • 44 million adults in the U.S. can't read well enough to read a simple story to a child.
  • 50% of American Adults are unable to read an eighth grade book


  1. That's shocking. In our day and age, in a first-world country?! No excuse. There should be no child left behind.

  2. It's really sad. I bet every year these statistics get worse.
