Press conference by Androulla Vassiliou on the Eurydice study "Teaching reading in Europe – contexts, policies and practices" and on the explosion in a naval base in Cyprus
Androulla Vassiliou, Member of the EC in charge of Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, held a press conference on 11 July 2011 to present a new study published by the European Commission showing what countries are doing to improve reading literacy – and where they are falling short. One in five 15 year olds and many adults in Europe cannot read properly. The study, which covers 31 countries (EU Member States, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Turkey), reveals that while most have made progress in developing literacy policies, they often lack focus on the groups most at risk, such as boys, children from disadvantaged households and migrant children. EU Education Ministers have set a target to reduce the share of poor readers from 20% to less than 15% by 2020. Only Belgium (Flemish Community), Denmark, Estonia, Finland and Poland have already achieved this target.The study, produced for the Commission by the Eurydice network, focuses on four key topics: teaching approaches, tackling reading difficulties, teacher education and the promotion of reading outside school. It examines each in the light of academic research, the latest results from international surveys and an in-depth review of national policies, programmes and best practices. It reveals that only eight countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Malta, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom) provide reading specialists at schools to support teachers and pupils.At this press conference, Androulla Vassiliou also expressed her sadness over the explosion in a naval base in Cyprus that had killed 12 people and injured dozens more that day.
