Literacy Movement Organization Deputy Minister of Educational Affairs Khakzad stated: "We must extend collaboration in the form of memorandums signed with different organizations to generate demand in society for literacy."
We must develop collaboration in the form of memorandums signed with other agencies to boost the demand in the society for literacy," said Khakzad, Deputy Minister of Education of the Literacy Movement Organization.
Ahmad Khakzad, the Deputy Minister of Educational Affairs, told a reporter from the Literacy Movement Organization about the educational priorities. Because of the ongoing Corona pandemic and changes in many activities, we notice our colleagues' initiatives and new ideas and welcome new ideas.
"The registration is verified, assuring the supply of quality strengthening training and also conducting an exam to verify the credentials gained by literacy students in 2020 according to the provided way of the forthcoming programs," Khakzad said.
"In some provinces, the average illiteracy rate is lower than the country's average," Khakzad said, referring to the diligent pursuit of acceleration programs in the provinces. "Unfortunately, the corona situation has implemented acceleration programs in these provinces a little difficult." As a result, we must enhance the provinces' average absolute illiteracy rate this year via virtual education techniques and initiatives.
The organization's deputy director of educational affairs continued by mentioning the difficulties in growing the demand for literacy in society, stating that the three major concerns contribute to diminishing the desire for illiteracy. The first is the circumstances surrounding the Corona pandemic and the presence of children at home, which prevents parents from enrolling in literacy classes. Second, the economic status of families and the function of the illiterate or illiterate individual in family life have resulted in less attention being paid to learning and literacy. Due to the mother's responsibility in the household, a mother pays less attention to her literacy. Third, there is a lack of demand and motivation due to the breadth of reading abilities and their insufficient application in audiences' lives.
"Preparing for the expansion of literacy functions, paying attention to literacy as an effective social skill in society's social processes, diversifying educational processes and media, make the illiterate population interested in attending literacy classes," Ahmad Khakzad said at the end of his speech. In addition, incorporating new technologies into programs, attracting local community capacity through cross-sectoral partnerships, paying attention to the proper processes for establishing and managing local learning centers, and adapting education to the ecosystem of each region can help meet social demand and reduce illiteracy.
