Why

Cell-Ed?

Low education
levels add an estimated $240 billion to annual U.S. health care costs and $225 billion in
non-productivity due
to unemployment.

Adults with limited literacy and education earn
58-70% less than their better-educated peers.

Uneducated girls are 4 times more likely to have a child before their 19th birthday.

Among
those with the lowest levels of education, 43% live in poverty.
