Ministry of Education Chief Officer Christen Suckoo said now that 86 percent of Cayman’s year-one students are reading at the required level, children can not do it alone and parental participation is vital in getting these results.

Mr. Suckoo said he hopes parents continue to learn what they can do to help their children read.
“In terms of parental involvement we do work in terms of the Early Childhood Education unit they work with centres and with parents in terms of encouraging the kind of things that need to happen in terms of having a society of literacy. In addition to that through the partnership of P.T.A’s schools encourage parents to take on the task of literacy as well and so through various means we encourage parents to be involved in the process,” Mr. Suckoo said.

September is recognised as International Literacy month.
