Thanks to years of research, advocacy and all of your hard work, it seems that everyone is getting the message that our children need to be reading by the end of third grade.  Some of our favorites:

Literate Nation promotes legislation and advocacy for all our children reading by third grade.  Share this movie!

The Campaign for Grade Level Reading is supported by dozens of funders and dedicates the All American City award to communities that have developed the most comprehensive, realistic and sustainable plans to increase grade-level reading proficiency by the end of third grade.

As literacy leaders, our job is to make sure our teachers have the support, training, and tools to do the this important work!
