This failure has many roots: The low social status of teachers and librarians relative to those in other professions, the lack of consistent instruction about information and media literacy across students' educational experience, the diminishment of the humanities as a core element of general education, and the difficulty of keeping up with technological change and digital culture have all played a role. So has the fact that information literacy has no specific place in the curriculum.

As we mark International Literacy Day this year, we can appreciate the great progress made in the last 50 years. The world's literacy rate increased from 69% in 1976 to 86% in 2016. Progress has been made in every part of the world, but the literacy challenge remains significant in sub-Saharan Africa (where 64% of people are literate), South Asia (71%), the Middle East and North Africa (80%). International Literacy Day on 8 September 2020 is a chance to think creatively about how to deliver education and literacy programmes to improve everyone's future.
