Many people confuse education with knowledge. This is why a lot of people still think you cannot know unless you go to school. No doubt, knowledge can be acquired in school through education. However, more knowledge is acquired through information, understanding or skills gotten from experiences around you. It can also be observed that during the Covid-19 lockdown, many youth and adult literacy programmes were suspended with just a few virtual courses through TV, radio and online media.
This year’s theme of International Literacy Day focuses on literacy teaching and learning in the Covid-19 crisis and beyond.CREM, as educators and promoters of literacy marked the event at her office in Lagos.
