The Right to Read

A student's ability to read is:

  • The foundation of all other learning;

  • A predictor of dropout rates, poverty, and incarceration; and

  • A significant pillar of workforce preparedness.

The good news is that we already have a solution: a homegrown model, based on the science of reading, that's ready to be scaled statewide.
