PCN Interview:  Adult Literacy Funding with Donald Block

Donald Block, Executive Director of the Greater Pittsburgh Literacy  Council,  wants Pennsylvanians to know that there’s more to literacy than  reading and writing.  According to the 2010 census,  710,000 adults in  the state didn’t have a high school diploma.  Mr. Block and his colleagues  say a state funding trend over the last five years shows a fifty percent cut for  literacy.  Watch Don's PCN Interview here.
