Abstract

During recent years governments otherwise concerned with trimming public sector spending have often trumpeted ‘funding packages’ dedicated to improving ‘literacy competence’ among school-age and adult populations. Whenever such packages are announced, our own immediate response has increasingly been to wonder ‘what does this package really mean so far as promoting a more literate and educated public is concerned?'.
