Executive Director of Literacy for Life Foundation, Jack Beetson, has called for more to be done to lift Indigenous literacy, in an interview with the ABC.
“Everyday people with low literacy become further marginalised by everyday tasks,” he said.
“They go into any government department and the first thing they get is, ‘Go online and fill out this form’.”
“How do you do that if you can’t read and write? Those people just go without. It’s appalling.”
