Reading matters- a lot

I did say this before.

The Every Child a Reader scheme could offer a return of more than £17 in the next 31 years for every £1 spent now.

The KPMG study said pupils who left primary schools in England and Wales with poor reading skills could go on to cost between £1.7bn and £2bn a year.

It's nice to see that some accountants agree with me. Perhaps the accountancy-obsessed NuLabour might actually do something now?
