Abstract: Purpose: The main issue in this study is the poor public organizational management in Indonesia due to the low quality of governance literacy skills among school graduates. Such a situation is caused by the weak and conventional public administration methods used by most public managers across the country, hence calling for improved approaches that can only be created through research. Design/methodology/approach: In the present study, the authors have tried to establish a better way of teaching good governance by strengthening literacy skills at the school level. The current research applied an approach and development design, with the research respondents from selected local administration offices with varying characteristics from around Bandung city. It has been established that developing good governance through strengthening literacy skills among school graduates improves the management of the organization's competence, both public and private. Findings: The model generated through this research is a learning model of literacy reading oriented to the development process and learning outcomes. Under the conditions of its final form, the model developed has some differences with other models that have been developed by experts in several previous studies. Practical implications: The model gives a positive contribution to the improvement of the reading literacy skills of elementary school students. Originality/Value: The proposed model is a solution to improve the students' habits and students' skills in reading comprehension in a variety of text types, either in scientific, social, and mathematical texts.
