The State of Childhood Literacy in Georgia

The recent Beyond 2020 Get Georgia Reading Summit brought together a unique cross-section of community leaders and statewide decision-makers to stimulate innovative, scalable solutions that will create the conditions essential for all children to become proficient readers by the end of third grade.

Get Georgia Reading Campaign Director Arianne Weldon welcomed Campaign partners and community representatives from across the state to review what we’ve accomplished over the past five years, to share what we’ve learned, and to seek new ways to accelerate our progress.

“From 2015 to 2019 we’ve moved the needle to more of our children reading proficiently above the national norm,” said Weldon. “The four-pillar framework that so many of you developed is now adopted and embedded. Cabinet members and partners have integrated the four pillars into strategic plans, proposals, and funding opportunities. And with these four pillars as our guide, we’ve crafted unexpected solutions and transformed how systems operate.”
