The ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur has mandated the regional consulting authorities on school perseverance and educational success in Québec (Projet PRÉE in Estrie) to collaborate with community partners on the implementation of a reading measure for 0-20 year olds and their parents.
This new measure, recurrent for a period of three years, has three main objectives:
- Promoting awareness and interest in reading among 0-9 year olds;
- Increase and maintain interest in reading among 10 to 20 year olds;
- Strengthen parenting skills in reading and enhance reading and writing skills for parents with little schooling.
For more details on the implementation of the reading measure, you can consult the following document, available in French only: Mesure en lecture : Favoriser, accroître et maintenir l’intérêt pour la lecture chez les 0-20 ans et leurs parents.
