With regards to the introduction - wouldn't it be better to present literacy as a set of skills and competencies that facilitate access to information and (effective?) participation in a community or social context? As I understand it literacy can come in many forms (visual, auditory, digital, etc...) and mostly has to do with ones ability to access, understand, organize, create, communicate and otherwise act on information. Grade levels provide a sort of measure of this, but are embedded in a context; what it takes to be literate in the United States may be different than what is required in say, Rwanda or India.
