IT’S TIME TO GET GEORGIA READING

In 2013, two-thirds of Georgia’s children weren’t reading proficiently by the end of third grade, bringing long-term negative consequences to these children, their families, their communities, and our state. Unwilling to yield any longer to the unspeakable rate of illiteracy in Georgia, hundreds of public and private leaders from across the state and across sectors have come together to take on third-grade reading as an urgent priority for all who care about children’s health and well-being. Together, we developed a four-pillar framework defining the conditions that must be in place so that every child in Georgia becomes a proficient reader by the end of third grade.
