Edutainment – The Best Way to Wake People Up?

 

At OccupyEducated.org, we’re asking people to do what they, statistically, are unlikely to do — read.

Perhaps because of the effects of television, social media, and sites like ours, we’re now left with some staggering statistics.

1/3 of high school graduates never read another book for the rest of their lives.
42 percent of college graduates never read another book after their college education.
80 percent of U.S. families did not buy or read a book last year.
70 percent of U.S. adults have not been in a bookstore in the last five years.
57 percent of new books are not read to completion, over half of those are not read past page 18.

Even if you profess you are reading, there’s a 1 in 3 chance you’re just saying so to make us feel better about these stats.

Take a look at a few examples, to inspired your comments in the forum.
