Abstract The authors discuss a paired reading program taking place in South Africa and the literacy standards and programs being used in Australia. Despite being 7,500 miles apart and having very different educational resources, the two countries share some of the same concerns in their educational initiatives: the gap between rich and poor, the importance of open-minded and high-quality teaching, and the power of connecting communities.
