CT Mirror - ‘Right to Read’ legislation passes as part of budget implementer

The legislation, initially dubbed the “Right to Read” act, calls for $12.8 million in spending to ensure that school districts where students are falling behind can hire reading coaches.

Baked into the Right to Read legislation, despite some pushback from educators and parents during public hearings, is the establishment of a Center for Literacy Research and Reading Success at the state Department of Education that will oversee the reading curriculum for Connecticut students in grades PreK-3.
