Numeracy & Literacy

Literacy and numeracy are among the most important life skills that our schools teach.  No child should leave school without having mastered these skills to the best of their abilities. Literacy and numeracy skills are crucial to a person’s ability to develop fully as an individual, to live a satisfying and rewarding life and to participate fully in our society.  Ensuring that all young people acquire these skills is one of the greatest contributions that we can make to achieving social justice and equity in our country.
