NEW CAMPAIGN AIMS TO HELP IMPROVE LITERACY LEVELS IN IRELAND

President Michael D Higgins says access to education is vital.

He’s posted a message on twitter to mark International Literacy Day.

Around 30% of Irish adults have low literacy levels compared to an international average of 10 – 15%.

Anthony Mann from the OECD says the first step to improving literacy is recognising low levels are a problem.
