About the Coalition

Founded in 2021, the California Reading Coalition is made up of educators, advocates, researchers, and policy makers committed to improved reading outcomes for all California students.  

We support school districts and advocacy groups in focusing on the California reading crisis and working to improve curriculum, instruction, teacher development, and ultimately outcomes for every student.  We produce the annual California Reading Report Card, which ranks districts based on their effectiveness in teaching reading by 3rd grade.  We also organize our Annual Gathering, bringing together the state's leaders in improving reading results to share successes and struggles, and help chart the course to move our state forward.
