Schools Alone Can’t Teach Children to Read

Believe it or not, schools alone can’t teach kids how to read. Kids need time and space outside the classroom to practice reading. Kids also need an enabling home environment — parents or siblings that encourage reading — in order to enrich the concepts they learn in the classroom. But kids also need to have fun. And when kids associate reading with fun, good things happen.

Good things are happening at Shromo Kallyan Public Library, a small library located in the village of Purba Daliram in the northwest corner of Bangladesh. See this photo story to learn more.
