A new survey from the International Literacy Association finds that what many teachers regard as “hot” in national conversations about literacy isn’t what they think is most important.

Past and present members of the International Literacy Association, most of whom were teachers or literacy/instructional coaches, and other teachers, academics, government workers and literacy professionals were asked to rate a set of 17 topics related to literacy on how “hot” and how “important” the topics are in their communities and in their countries.
