As a current literacy teacher and former GED teacher, I can say from experience that the reason most people are illiterate has nearly nothing to do with not taking school seriously or considering it a "big party", but more to do with learning disabilities, being discouraged by teasing, having prolonged illness, or being torn away from education because of other responsibilities- like taking care of children or working. Schools graduate students who are illerate or very poor readers. Personal responsibility is a small piece of the larger puzzle of literacy.
