is in Crisis
Reading is the foundation of success in school and in life. But in California, 66% of low-income Latinx and African American 3rd graders read below grade level; few ever catch up. We know how to do better if we follow the research!
Research-Based Reading Instruction is the Key
California's 3 million low-income students lag similar students nationwide in reading ability. If we align reading instruction with research and brain science, we can help ALL California students succeed.
