The human brain is hard-wired for spoken language, but we are not born with the natural ability to read.

Early literacy..... um... I think we call that school don't we. And we already have those in place. The biggest issue qe have with illiteracy is parents who don't seem to care if their children are learning. They don't work with them to be sure they get their work done. You can't just send a kid to school and expect that kid will actually learn what is presented, you as a parent must be sure they are learning. You must make them learn; hold them responsible for learning. And hold them back when they fail.
