On another note regarding causes of illiteracy:


In a world where computers are standard equipment in every home, there should be no reason that these causes of illiteracy should exist. It is only through the education of the population that advancements in civilization can occur, and literacy is the first boundary to cross.

To Maureen and All: Is poverty the cause of illiteracy? Or is

As you can see, there are many causes of illiteracy, but every single one of them can be overcome. Literacy volunteers work across the United States and around the world to open up the world of reading and writing to those who are illiterate. So, of you can’t read or write or you know someone who can’t, get help. And, if you are literate, volunteer to help. That’s the only way to overcome the causes of illiteracy.

Some causes of illiteracy:

One of the major causes of illiteracy is poverty and the subsequent lack of access to reading and writing materials. Realistically, students who would have gone on to continue their education past the 5th year sometimes quit school in order to work on the farm or in a factory in order to assist with the family income. Also if a family is poor, food and the basic necessities of life take precedence before books can be purchased. Related to this issue is Maslow’s theory on the hierarchy of needs. Maslow, a well-known psychologist, wrote that people deprived of basic needs, such as shelter, food, clothes, and basic safety, are less likely to develop themselves with higher education (University of Tennessee Website, 2004). In other words, economic instability can affect the ability of a population to become literate.

In Asia, for example, poverty can keep people from having access to an education. Textbooks cost money as do teachers. For many of the poor, developing countries, there simply is no money to fund education.Contributing causes of illiteracy include poverty, learning disabilities, unilingualism, and technology. Many students who graduate from high school have limited vocabularies, and below normal reading and writing skills. Some have never read a novel. The majority cannot write grammatically correct sentences. But these students not only graduate from high school, they enter college as well, even though they are below what was once considered the norm for entry-level college students.There are no definite links between poverty and illiteracy and yet it is often the underlying cause in many undeveloped countries. Poor communities have meager funds with which can be applied toward teaching staff, books and materials to educate their children. Families that are underprivileged lack appropriate clothing, resources for transportation and sources for regular meals that would enable their children to attend school. Frequently, children can be found begging for money on city streets; an activity that keeps their families fed but also keeps the child from becoming educated. This factor leads to the next of the most common causes of illiteracy; cultural influences.
