John Corcoran

National literacy advocate John Corcoran helped to bring illiteracy out of the shadows with his autobiography, The Teacher Who Couldn’t Read: The True Story of a High School Instructor Who Triumphed over His Illiteracy. His shocking and emotionally moving story—from being a child who was failed by the system, to an angry adolescent, a desperate college student, and finally an emerging adult reader—touched audiences of such national television shows as the Oprah Winfrey Show, 20/20, the Phil Donahue Show, and Larry King Live. His story was also featured in national magazines such as Esquire, Biography, Reader’s Digest, and People.
