The Icelandic language is facing challenges in the modern, digital age
Iceland performs below average on all three main levels in the 2015 OECD PISA Report, which was published today.
A teacher in Þingeyjarskóli, northeastern Iceland, who holds a degree in reading instruction from Germany, claims she lost her job because she refused to adopt a controversial Icelandic method of teaching children to read.
The number of Icelanders who never read books has nearly doubled in the past four years, growing from 7 percent in 2011, to 13,3 percent in 2015. This was revealed in a recently published study undertaken by Capacent for the Icelandic Publishers’ Association.
