THE REASON AND PURPOSE OF THE NATIONAL ILLITERACY ACTION PROJECTT 2007-2012
The purpose of the National Illiteracy Action Project (NIAP) is to train 66,000 Master English Tutors to provide literacy educational tutoring services to 6.6 million K-12 students and adult workforce participants, to encourage the creation of community literacy collaborations, and to help increase the family participation in learning to read, write and spell. Literacy tutoring programs can best be implemented with the community as a hub and benefit participants by creating the skills to help improve quality of life and family prosperity.
The NIAP 2007-2012 is not about more discussion, reading more books to children or more research; it's about implementation of the National Illiteracy Action ProjectT, based on President Reagan's National Council on Adult Education report "Illiteracy in America: Extent, Causes, and Suggested Solutions", to solve the illiteracy problem in America.
THE ECONOMIC IMPACT
NIAP is a self sustainable program that will provide jobs and an income of $25,000 to $50,000 per year for each Master English Tutor.
Seed funding, from strategic philanthropists and grants, is used to provide Talking Page English Linguistics materials and training for the 66,000 Master English Tutors. Each Master English Tutor is able to tutor 100 or more participants in one year.
Each participant is given a battery of seven 3-minute assessment tests to determine the English literacy skills that need to be taught.
A participant literacy learning plan with the number of tutoring hours, normally from 20-25 hours, is agreed and signed with each participant and tutor. The tutor's hourly fees range from $5.00 to $10.00.
THE SOCIAL IMPACT
This is the best part of the NIAP program: Master English Tutors are recruited from each local community, businesses, faith-based organizations, and other community partners. No prior experience or education is necessary, just neighbor helping neighbor.
Uncle Sam's Joining the Fight to End Illiteracy in America Statement:
I am joining the fight to end illiteracy in America.
Not since George Washington showed my image to Betsy Ross that gave her the idea of the design of the American flag and my \"I WANT YOU\" recruiting posters from World War I and World War II, have I felt a need to awaken this nation to band together to solve the national illiteracy crises.
Today, about 90 million Americans are functionally illiterate, that's an individual\'s ability to read, write, spell, and speak in English. Illiteracy starts at 4 years old, continues through grades K-12, and explodes with adults 16 years old and above in the workforce.
\"I WANT YOU\" to join me, your mayor, your church, your business, your community and be part a project the will serve humanity for the high good of all by ending illiteracy in America.
Martha Gellhorn, WWII War Correspondent " For Democracy, or even the pretense of democracy, you need a fair percentage of literacy among the population, free communication - not only free speech and print, but by road and rail, enough time out, from struggling desperately for survival, to vote".
