Today we celebrate international literacy day and I have some thoughts on this day. There is significant difference between education and literacy I was thinking about. As per the meaning a person is literate who knows how to read and write. On the other hand a person may or may not be educated who is literate. By education we don’t mean degrees on papers but the entire system of upbringing that makes a person future ready. Education reflects in the behaviour and day to day activities of a person. An well educated person stands out in the crowd and can be easily recognised among masses.
International Literacy Day 2020 focuses on “Literacy teaching and learning in the Covid-19 crisis”.
