Celebrate The Gift Of Education On Sept. 8, International Literacy Day!

“Literacy is not a luxury, it is a right and a responsibility.”
– President Bill Clinton on International Literacy Day, September 8th 1994

The ability to read, write and communicate on a global scale is something most of us take for granted. For those without access to education, illiteracy is a debilitating reality.

On September 8th — United Nations’ International Literacy Day — take a moment to appreciate the gift of education. Focus the attention in your classroom, your school, your family and your community on literacy issues.

Join the global celebration and spread the word! Share pictures and videos to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the official hashtag #ILD14.
