The basic lack of reading and writing skills or illiteracy does not preclude the ability of a person to get through life, but illiteracy certainly does preclude that any quality of life will be achievable.
The USA provides free public education up to high school level, yet many people remain uneducated, but this does not mean that such people are stupid, dumb, or without a natural intelligence. So what are the effects of illiteracy?
Poverty and illiteracy often go together. An effect of illiteracy is that it can replicate and be passed down the generations. Illiterate adults have a far greater chance of having illiterate children than normally educated families.
