Learn About the International Literacy Association
ILA is a global advocacy organization, and literacy is our cause, our passion, and our reason for being.
We publish cutting-edge research on literacy, and we translate this research into practical resources for educators, students, and leaders involved in spreading literacy all across the world. Armed with a deep understanding of the history of reading and literacy research, we advocate for teachers' and students' needs and set the standards for how literacy is taught and evaluated.
