Central Florida adults learning how to read

The story of Jeremy White is one that chronicles a young man who never learned how to read when he was young, and his illiteracy has plagued him ever since throughout adulthood. 

At age 21 Jeremy had no job, no prospects, and the reading level of a 2nd grader. Jeremy is not alone. 1 out of 6 people in central Florida are not functionally literate. 

Jeremy decided he had enough and enrolled himself at the Adult Literacy League where for the past several years he has been getting tutored. 

"You can do anything if you put your mind to it. You just have to try."

Fox35's David Martin has the inspirational story as well as other facts about illiteracy in central Florida.
