By From page A4 | January 15, 2013

FAIRFIELD — The Literacy in Education Access Resource Network recently received grants of $3,000 each from Comcast and Kaiser Permanente.

Combined with a $2,500 sponsorship from Sutter Health’s Sacramento Sierra Region, the program is enhancing its efforts to stem the dropout rate in local schools.

The Literacy in Education Access Resource Network is a partnership between the Solano County Library, business and civic leaders, school districts, youth organizations, nonprofits and other agencies.

“This partnership has significant resources to help reduce the school dropout rate,” said Dilenna Harris, executive director of Solano County Library Foundation, in a press release. “We are thrilled to receive the support of these major businesses as we increase literacy and technology skills for Solano County students.”

    Good parenting skills and love are the best instruments to combat illiteracy and dropping out of school. And the worst contributor to school drop out rates is the government welfare state where government becomes a substitute "parent". The economic incentive to have children out of wedlock and live off of government crumbs is what has caused all of these problems yet most of you people want "more of the same". Thats how you voted, remember?
