The Importance of Literacy #Infographic

Although the benefits of home-language literacy have been extensively recorded, the Australian education system has not been successful in providing institutional support for its growth. This paper explores the effects of (il)literacy in the home language on the academic, affective, and social growth of bilingual / multilingual children and proposes standards that home-language literacy initiatives should follow to be successful. This addresses programs that can be easily modified to meet the needs of the linguistically and culturally diverse Australian environment, though developed mainly in classroom settings to improve literacy or second-language skills.

We argue that the cost of not investing in effective home-language literacy programs would in the long run be higher than the cost of adopting them, and recommend that Australia consider funding grassroots home-language literacy projects in a bid to boost overall literacy outcomes for home-language speakers.
