As we celebrate another International Literacy Day, under the theme ‘Literacy and Sustainable Development’, I would like to make a plea for our nation to ascribe a significantly higher degree of importance to the issue of literacy in Guyana. The theme for Education Month this year, ‘Literate by Grade 4 Through Consistent, Home, School and Community Involvement’, was devised to convey the need for a collective effort if we are to succeed in making our populace more literate. It is clear that if we are to make significant improvements with regards to literacy in Guyana, it must be recognized that the Ministry of Education alone cannot adequately address this and a more broad-based, national approach must be developed. This would require appreciation of the deep national developmental implications this holds. The research is abundantly clear; the more literate the population, the greater the output in all sectors.
