It's our language. It's how we communicate. By default, that makes it important. In a society that produces written material at the rate we do, every child deserves to learn how to read. Historically, the public schools in the United States were established with the primary goal to teach reading. The founding fathers believed that every citizen should be able to read the Bible (instead of being told what it says) and that an informed public would be less easily deceived or manipulated into giving up their freedoms. Once a child is taught how to read, the next step is to put it into practice. The literature section is currently very small and only has online texts at this time. We intend to correct this issue over time.
