Every Child A Reader Program

The enclosure to DepEd Order no. 70 s.2011 nor the Every Child a Reader Program (ECARP) of the Department of Education does not mention school librarians or school libraries potential role in the literacy intervention campaign via a Reading Recovery (RR) program in our public elementary educational system.

A review of issued memorandum, guidelines and other background information as posted in the Phil-IRI website (Philippine Informal Reading Inventory) that dated as far as 2004, no mention whatsoever about librarians or school libraries as source of the needed reading materials for the literacy intervention.

The latest DepEd memo however do mention of setting up a Regional Reading Recovery Centers (RRRCs) of international standards and procurement of story books for children.
