The importance of teaching your Child to Read

By Richard Francois

One of the most critical life skills a human being must possess in order to survive in the modern world is the ability to read. Being able to read opens the mind to limitless possibilities. Reading allows individuals to significantly enlighten themselves with the exploration of new words and the exchanging of ideas. It is very important that persons learn to read from an early age, in order to properly furnish themselves with the critical knowledge necessary for their personal development as literate people.

Moreover, MOE is presently putting measures in place to reverse the blight of illiteracy in Guyana through an innovative reading programme.
