The Social and Economic Impact of Illiteracy
Des maux illisibles is an interactive essay that portrays illiteracy in Quebec through the testimony of three illiterate : Mathieu, 18 years old, Sylvie, a 52 years old woman looking for a job and Diane, 42 and struggling with health problems. Each of these three examples reveals the daily reality of those who can neither read nor write. Their stories also leads us to think about the causes as well as social and economic impacts of illiteracy in three critical areas for the future of our society: education, employment and health.
