The numbers are cause for concern. More than one in ten young people have “reading difficulties” in France, reveals Tuesday, June 6 a study by the Ministry of National Educationwhich is based on tests conducted among the 750,000 participants in Defense and Citizenship Day in 2022. The survey also reveals that, among these young people in difficulty, half are illiterate.
11% of young people have difficulty reading
Of the 750,000 young people of French nationality, aged 16 to 25, 11.2% “are in difficulty in the field of reading”, details a note from Depp, a statistics agency of the Ministry of Education. Young people “in a situation of illiteracy” are characterized “by very low reading comprehension, or even non-existent”. Those who encounter the most severe difficulties and who represent 4.9% of the total are characterized by a “significant vocabulary deficit”.
The survey, conducted every year since 2009, also highlights a difference between boys and girls: 12.9% of boys are in difficulty, against 9.1% of girls.
