Read Write Now student to feature on SBS Insight program

As you well know, it is rare for adult literacy to be in the spotlight as the shame and stigma of poor literacy result in it being covered up.
The TV program Insight, hosted by Jennie Brockie will focus on this issue in the program titled Reading Between the Lines (aired Tuesday 23rd August), and the really exciting news is that a Read Write Now student is a guest on the program. More information here.

Did you know that almost half of the Australian population struggles with everyday practical literacy skills? That's why newspapers are written for the reading level of 10-11 year olds.
