The history of illiteracy has long been regarded as the history of the social and educational problems of developing countries. Illiteracy will doubtlessly remain in a serious problem for developing countries in coming decades despite the fact that numerous efforts have been made to reduce rates of illiteracy, that notable advances have been achieved with respect to increasing the level of public participation in formal and non-formal educational activities, and that more and more people are becoming aware of the problem of illiteracy.
