International Literacy Day

Happy International Literacy Day!

Fifty-one years ago, September 8 was officially designated as International Literacy Day by UNESCO.  UNESCO is the United Nations group dedicated to increasing literacy rates around the world and using literacy to empower people and communities through inclusive, equitable, and quality education.  Each year UNESCO celebrates with a different theme; this year’s is “Literacy in a digital world”.  As the role of technology is such an important topic in education today, we at Custom Education Solutions were excited to see such a forward-thinking theme.
