New literacy agenda

4th September 2009 at 01:00
The National Literacy Trust is to launch its Manifesto for Literacy next week in an attempt to set the agenda in the run up to the general election

According to the charity, the outcome of the next election could define policy on literacy for the next "five, if not 10 years". A spokesperson said: "The National Literacy Trust is presenting the priorities for the next government in a manifesto, which also contains the results of a YouGov survey, demonstrating that 69 per cent of the electorate say their vote would be influenced by policies on literacy." The manifesto will be launched on Tuesday September 8, International Literacy Day.
