Poor reading habits among SA kids could affect their future

A national education department study showed that in 2003 grade 3 pupils scored an average of 54% in a literacy test and 39% in a reading and writing test, a Business Day article published on the 22 August says.

The article quotes an expert who notes that a poor reading culture in SA means many schoolchildren ill-equipped for future.

It also referes to the Open Letter that the Education Department published on the 11 August ( see reference of that letter my blog ) encouraging teachers to teach kids how to read.
