Improving literacy for Tasmanian students - Grattan Institute

When children do not learn to read fluently and efficiently, it can undermine their future learning across all subject areas, harm their self-esteem, and limit their life chances. For communities, poor literacy levels can lead to worse social outcomes, lower productivity, and less economic growth. Tasmania’s performance on PISA lags Australia’s national average and is well behind that of the top PISA performers internationally.
