Arguing that reading is beneficial won’t get young people to read
“Decreasing literacy is not only a society-sized problem; it is a human-sized problem, too. In the West, a growing number of young people are in danger of getting marginalised because of their lacking reading and writing skills.
Young people will read if they find texts of their interest. Video games and rap lyrics can be gateways to reading”, writes Olli Alanen, Executive Director of the Children and Youth Foundation.
