Reading and literacy is matter of great concern in today’s society. Before, it was considered as a hobby and dedication to fetch a story book or a novel from the library was a trend that is becoming obsolete, because of fast hi-tech gadgets and online system. Especially from primary education to secondary, there are many students who are not aware: of how to spell, write or pronounce some words correctly. Parents should encourage their children to read a story book and do other related outdoor activities instead of spending time watching TV or playing computer or online games or trending social sites. Parents are neglecting spending time with their children and contradicting their priorities.
To identify the level of literacy, numeracy and reading among school students, they should compete in games and create workshops and awareness that might help them to rectify and overcome barriers that the unfortunate ones, who are not able to read, write or pronounce. This may help them to lead better lives as students and also help them to become responsible citizens of the country.
