What Happened to Literacy? Historical and Conceptual Perspectives on Literacy in UNESCO
Wagner, Daniel A.
International Journal of Educational Development, v31 n3 p319-323 May 2011
For more than six decades, UNESCO has dedicated itself to be the international agency leader in literacy, even though other aspects of educational development have received greater attention and resources by the broader international community. Resources for UNESCO's literacy work have not increased, and its programmatic activities have been increasingly debated when seen in relationship to the scope of literacy challenges across the globe. Moving forward in a time of restricted budgets will require UNESCO to strengthen itself as a professional innovator and thought leader.
