Eighty-five year old man learns to read!

Lessons in Literacy, WSFA-TV news

I found this very interesting, and encouraging! Fred Oliver is the oldest person learning to read with the Literacy Council of Central Alabama! He wants to write a book about his life, and I want to read it. :-)

Mr. Oliver's advice to older people who need help learning to read: "Get out from in front of the TV and come to school," he said, then continued with, "You missed out? So you missed out. You can't reach back and get what you lost, but you can better your life at any stage."
