Reading is one of the basic literacy skills in the 21st century that impacts the personal learning of an individual and the intellectual growth. Many adolescents, especially boys, are characterized as reluctant readers as they move to higher classes in the educational system. These readers may like reading but do not read for many reasons and thus may minimize their academic potential. Download the Newsletter

Boys Reading in a nutshell - The Boys Reading project aims to make reading an integral part in the life of boys aged 10-15, who are currently unenthusiastic about books. Boys Reading asserts that this can only be achieved if teenage boys acquire control over their reading and choose from books that address their needs and interests. In one of five EU countries 15-year-olds have poor reading skills (OECD), while the majority of poor and reluctant readers and eventually high-school drop-outs are male youths.

U odgojno-obrazovnim sustavima u Europi se već duže vrijeme pokušavaju osigurati jednake mogućnosti za učenje svih učenika. Osiguravanje jednakih mogućnosti za djevojčice ili učenike migrante je u središtu navedenih pokušaja dok je osiguravanje jednakosti za dječake relativno novi aspekt, koji u sve većoj mjeri postaje pitanje kojim se nužno baviti. Diljem Europe prepoznaje se potreba za posvećivanjem posebne pažnje razvoju pismenosti i pozitivnih stavova prema pismenosti kod dječaka adolescentske dobi, a budući da je riječ o skupini koja je u potencijalnom riziku.
