Briefing Note on Child Literacy

The Children’s Rights Alliance selected child literacy as a key policy priority for 2009.  In doing so, we aimed to explore the issue of child literacy in more detail and push it onto the political agenda.  We sought to improve the understanding of literacy as a right for all children, not just a privilege for some.  In January 2009, when the Alliance took this issue on, there was no organisation championing it for children.  Since then, both the National Economic and Social Forum (NESF)  and Barnardos  have done significant work in raising the issue up the political agenda.
