Half of Czech students not media literate

At least half of Czech secondary students are not media literate, according to the results of a survey conducted by the NGO People in Need at 132 schools around the country. Despite growing awareness of the need to connect classroom learning to the real world only half of the secondary schools surveyed made media education part of their curricula. Its introduction was first recommended to schools ten years ago. Some of the schools that have introduced media education only devote ten hours a year to it.
