Advocate Leaders to Address Oregon’s Literacy Crisis

Wed, Jun 15, 2022

Reading is a foundational skill for children to succeed in school and life. Although research shows almost every child can learn to read, more than half of Oregon’s 3rd graders are not reading at grade level, with disproportionate disparities in our state’s Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and rural communities. Let state leaders know you believe our most struggling K-5 schools should have the tools they need, including teacher training and intensive tutoring, to ensure all children learn to read.
