Scotland's literacy action plan launched

Tuesday, November 2, 2010

The first action plan to improve literacy from early years through to adulthood has been developed by the Scottish government.

The Literacy Action Plan aims to break the link between poverty and poor literacy by tackling the problem early on and making it easier for adults to access ways to improve their skills. Plans include targeting vulnerable families in the second year of the Play Talk Read campaign and using the Curriculum for Excellence to help develop a child's early literacy skills.
