It is time to build on North Carolina’s history of innovation and success to tackle one of the greatest challenges facing the state: the overwhelming majority of our children are not reading proficiently by the end of third grade. Reading well in the early grades predicts a child’s academic and career success.
To address this challenge, we need to adopt policies and practices that are both based in research and informed by the people who know the most about what children need – their parents and caregivers. Read Tracy’s blog, then take the survey about your parenting experiences.
Take the survey in English or Spanish!
