Every child should be able to read with purpose and meaning in their mother tongue language.

This coming from the soil of Africa's unforgettable sons.

A Balanced Approach.

  • The most important task of primary school is to teach children to Read.
  • The Reading program in every school should enable almost every learner to read fluently and grasp grade appropriate material by the end of primary school.

1) To have read a vast number of books, magazines and other informational text.

2) To reach high levels of comprehension ability.

3) To enjoy and learn from reading.

  • These goals can only be achieved if learners are able to decode and read beginning material by the mid-first grade.
  • To be able to perfect these basic skills and tackle more difficult text by grade three.
  • Most learners who fails to learn to read by this time are destined to fall further and further (perpetually) behind in school.
  • They are effectively prevented from capitalizing on the power of education to improve and enrich their lives.
  • Many children do not become readers early enough to develop the skills and experience to read age-appropriate materials throughout their primary careers and are in effect, excluded from instruction.
  • Access to further study, high skilled employment and the opportunity to participate fully as knowledgeable citizens depends in a large part on school success.
  • Reading Failure is preventable.
  • The growing demand for a Reading Revolution is growing by the minute to remedy this unnecessary situation.
