QIRS - QUADREANNIAL INTERNATIONAL READING SYMPOSIUM 2012

QIRS - QUADREANNIAL INTERNATIONAL READING SYMPOSIUM 2012

The International Reading Symposium (QIRS) is an open-platform for all members of
the general public. QIRS only takes place every four years, so the Public QIRS Event is a
great opportunity to listen to the Speakers about academic research and viable
‘progress’ that has been made during each consecutive quadrennial (four year)
year period.
In a world where modern technology changes fast, it is high time to ‘begin’ the
discussion on how the fast pace changes in technology will impact on children and
adults who are already struggling on the fringes of reading, education and literacy.
In 2008, The Guardian published a headline titled ‘Why a million UK adults cannot read
this headline’ - online. It is a fact that one million adults in Britain have a ‘standard of
literacy no better than that of a seven-year old’. One in every five adults in the US is
Illiterate. English is the second language of 40% of London pupils. One of the most
relevant cause to why this symposium has been launched is to address the major
education gap in Caribbean communities where roughly 70% of young Afro-Caribbean
pupils left school with less than five higher level GCSEs or equivalent(s). This represents
the lowest level of achievement for any ethnic group of school children.
The Knowledge Panel members are rooted in Community and actively work in the
Education sector as Lecturers, Community Leaders or Business Support Executives.
The Paper Extracts include Presentations on: The Importance of Beginning the
Discussion, Knowledge Is Power, Awareness & Empowerment, Building sustainable,
patterns for change and laying the foundations: Reading.
There will be an exhilarating book signing of new and established titles from Award
Winner and Obama Shield Recipient: Dr Christopher Johnson - “British Caribbean
Enterprise”, Andrea Campbell “Jamaican Proverbs” and Nardia Foster and “Out of
Slavery”.
