36% of DC Adults Are Functionally Illiterate

What surprises me here is that 20% of adults in America are functionally illiterate. I never would have imagined the rate would be that high.

WASHINGTON - About one-third of the people living in the national's capital are functionally illiterate, compared with about one-fifth nationally, according to a report on the District of Columbia.

I don't understand why this story is in the "Entertainment" section of this newspaper.
