The problem of Illiterate Public School Graduates
Methods, Strategies, and Techniques For Dealing With Illiteracy

In a discussion of methods and strategies for solving the problem of illiteracy of public school graduates, Parker reported that according to statistics which she collected for the National Commission on Excellence in Education, this alarming trend can only be reversed through diverse, across-the-board measures. These measures include: stiffer graduation requirements, periodic progress testing, tougher college admission standards, longer school days and years, and better teaching salaries.

However, some authors disagree with this across-the-board approach, pointing out that when illiteracy statistics are examined, it is found that the majority of students have distinct demographic characteristics; for example, illiteracy among public school graduates has been found to be especially high among limited English speakers and college athletes., Because of such findings, many feel that a more viable solution to handling the problem is, therefore, to develop and implement programs especially geared for these at-risk student groups.
