Today's post is just a statistic that truly shows the importance of increasing literacy rates around the world: According to UNICEF's report on global education, if every student in low-income countries had basic reading skills, 171 million people would be lifted out of poverty- a 12% overall cut in global poverty. And that's just basic reading skills: imagine what we could accomplish if every student went to school through 8th grade? Or even graduated high school? Education truly has the power to change lives.
