I am not talking about mispelling things or having a mental disorder. Is it because of poor school systems from long ago? I mean a store asked for a donation for illiterate adults and I thought WTF? I would be mad if I went through school and still couldn't read.

Standards in the schools have changes quite a bit in recent years. All the high stakes testing that has recently become prevalent is designed to stop children from being pushed through school without learning necessary skills. (Now whether or not that works is another question)
The reason some kids learn to read while others sit in the same classrooms and don't progress is a matter of the way our brains function. We don't all learn things the same way.
I taught adult basic education classes for several years and I believe that the vast majority of the illiterate adults I worked with had a sever learning disability that prevented them from learning to read in the same way most of us do.
