Put a teachers assistant in every classroom and create a part time school hours job for a Mum or Dad. Not a degree Qualified person but just someone who can help kids read one on one for at least 10 minutes a day per child.

Put a classroom assistant in every primary school class. Create part time jobs during school hours which do not put pressure on childcare or families. If every classroom has a reading assistant, it would help catch the kids who need extra support and also create jobs. Not a degree qualified person but a Mum or Dad who is used to dealing with children who can spend 10 minutes a day with every child making sure they are keeping up.
