Did You Know?

More than 60 percent of Florida’s fourth graders are not reading on grade level – hindering their success in the classroom and beyond.

The Florida Grade-Level Reading Campaign is working with communities and organizations statewide to boost early childhood literacy.

The Huddle

The online community of the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading Network.

Statistics Lottery

An alarming number of children – about 67 percent nationwide and more than 80 percent of those from low-income families – are not proficient readers by the end of third grade. This has significant and long-term consequences not only for each of those children, but for their communities and our nation as a whole. If left unchecked, this problem will undermine efforts to end intergenerational poverty, close the achievement gap and reduce high school dropout rates. Far fewer of the next generation will be prepared to succeed in a global economy, participate in higher education or enter military and civilian service.
