Three cochairs have been selected to lead the Global Task Force charged with creating a plan to implement The Frankfurt Declaration:
- Beryl Exley, associate professor of early childhood education at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia
- William Teale, president of ILA’s Board of Directors and professor, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA
- Scott Walter, executive director of CODE in Ottawa, Canada
The Declaration, a document outlining the future of ILA’s organizational role and subsequent goals around the world, was written with global stakeholders during a two-day summit in Germany earlier this year and was reported on in detail in July’s Leaders for Literacy: Updates & Insights.
