United Way's push to end illiteracy

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diegans united Thursday to put a stop to illiteracy.

The United Way of San Diego County hosted a forum for North County business leaders.

The focus of the event was to discuss the challenges in early childhood education and how they can get involved.

One of the speakers was John Corcoran, a college-education high school teacher who didn't learn how to read until he was in his late 40s.

"My hope is… to remind people that it's never too late to learn. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. I was full of joy," Corcoran said.

CBS News 8's Dan Cohen emceed the event.
