Staff reports | You might be surprised to learn that 81,000 Charleston-area adults don’t have their GED, or General Education Diploma that equates to a high school diploma. In fact, according to the Trident Literacy Association, one in seven adults in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties can’t read this sentence.
To make a dent in illiteracy, the association is holding its first annual Adult Literacy Fair. It will be held 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 29 at the organization’s headquarters, 5416 Rivers Ave., North Charleston. Y
