LECXIT is a Fundació Bofill program whose objective is to promote educational success by improving reading comprehension. From the project we have the challenge of guaranteeing that all students finish the primary stage with a level of reading competence that ensures their educational and social development.
For this we have a network of 300 Lecxit Spaces (educational centers, libraries and social entities) in 150 municipalities where more than 2000 volunteers accompany a child in 4th, 5th or 6th grade weekly to make reading a fun and thrilling.
Lecxit also offers guidelines and materials to families to involve them in improving reading habits and coordinates with educational centers to choose the children who most need to participate in the project.
In the 4th year of primary school there is a highly unequal distribution in the results of achieving the competence between educational centers according to their complexity index: 52,4% of the students have a medium-low or low level in schools of high complexity, while in schools of low complexity that percentage is reduced to 24.2%.
1 in 7 students finish primary school with a low level of reading comprehension and therefore do not understand what they read. (Higher Council for the Evaluation of the Educational System 2022).
Any school, library or social entity that aims to promote children’s taste for reading with the accompaniment of a volunteer can be Espacio Lecxit. Host reading pairs (child + volunteer) in your space and support their reading sessions.
