Today is International Literacy Day! Each year, International
Literacy Day highlights the status of literacy and adult learning
globally. There are now almost 4 billion literate people in the world,
but universal literacy remains an elusive target. One in six adults is
still not literate and more than 67 million children are out-of-school.
In 1965 the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural
Organization (UNESCO) designated September 8 as International Literacy
Day. It has been observed every year since 1966. Find out ways that you
can help and learn more about this day.
