Half of Los Angeles Adults Illiterate

This is an amazing story. Half of LA adults cannot even read a simple bus schedule. Are you freakin kidding me? Yeah those public schools sure are doing a good job aren't they. What a complete joke. I'm sure illegal immigration has nothing to do with this. I'm going to file this article away in my memory when liberals bitch about schools not getting enough funding. It's sounding like all the money in the world can't help these people. Think about that liberals.

    I agree Mr unemplyment. Having 50% of your adult population is very nasty. It happens to be a news story. That's why I posted it. Please explain to my blog readers why posting a true article is nasty.

    No, you misunderstand me. Yes, 50% illiteracy in L.A. is appalling. What I object to is you referring to illiterate people as "these people," as if you are better than them because you can read. That's ridiculous. You gleefully point out what's wrong with this and that, yet you offer no postive solution. You continually stress your "rightness" etc. without taking into a account the multiplicity of perspectives, educational levels, class affiliations, etc. Your view is very narrowminded, materialistic, often meanspirited, and that is what I meant by nasty.

    Wake up! Anyone who is silly enough to write that just because something is in a newspaper article makes it true is a truly ignorant person. Who conducted the study. What was their catchment group etc.

    And I am female not male.
