Summary

This report condenses discussions held at the 1990 Reporters' Workshop on Literacy, attended by about 40 journalists and other professionals. The workshop's purpose was to help journalists dig beneath the traditional "Johnny can't read" stories to report on the serious social implications of illiteracy in America. Following an introduction, the report is presented in nine brief sections in telegraphic style. The sections are: (1) Why cover literacy? (2) Who will read literacy stories? (3) How not to cover literacy; (4) Effective approaches; (5) Fast facts about literacy; (6) List of resources; (7) Quotes; (8) List of workshop participants; and (9) Brief description of the Gannett Foundation.
