UKLA makes major contribution to National Literacy Trust Literacy manifesto!
The National Literacy Trust has launched a Manifesto for literacy to call on the political parties to prioritise literacy in their manifestos for the anticipated 2010 election. The Manifesto for literacy makes specific recommendations for government to develop literacy support for families, to modernise literacy teaching and to run a national campaign taking literacy to new audiences. The United Kingdom Literacy Association made a substantial submission to the consultation which led to the final manifesto content.
