Despite spending at least $13,000 per student for education, California has the lowest literacy rate in the whole US of A.

The left-wing loons on the left coast have pumped themselves up for decades as advocates for “the children.” But despite constant kow towing to to teachers unions, and decades of far-left policies, California ranks as the worst state in the country for actually educating anyone.

The news comes from Capitol Weekly:

Nearly 1 in 4 people over the age of 15 lack the skills to decipher the words in this sentence. Only 77 percent of adults are considered mid to highly literate, according to the nonpartisan data crunchers at World Population Review.

In New Hampshire, the most literate state in the country, only about 5 out of 100 lack English reading and writing skills. Its literacy rate hovers near 95 percent.

“It doesn’t surprise me at all,” said Niu Gao, a senior fellow who studies education issues at the Public Policy Institute of California. “California in general does not do very well, and you can see this throughout the entire education pipeline.”

Get rid of the leftism. Actually teach kids.

You’ll see that little problem reverse in quick time.
