The Coronavirus crisis has forced us to develop remote learning techniques. These can be applied to the development of teaching materials for learning to read. And it has brought out the best in us with more than 1 million people volunteering to help the NHS early last year.
We can combine these two by having the Department for Education produce appropriate literacy teaching materials, distributed over the internet. And then they can find one million volunteers and put them in touch with one million adult illiterates.
