Transparency: World Literacy Day

September 8 is International Literacy Day, a day to focus on the benefits that literacy can bring to a developing country or community and on finding a way to bring the ability to read to the 776 million adults around the world who still lack it. Our latest Transparency is a look at the 50 countries (where data is available) that saw their literacy rates improve the most between 1970 and 2005, with each country's literacy rate represented by the first 100 words of their constitutions.For more on what you can do to help literacy, consider checking out our old friends at Room to Read.A collaboration between GOOD and Zut Alors, Inc.
