Because all children have the right to read and succeed.

Our work helps ensure all children gain the reading skills they need to succeed in school and beyond. Children who fail to learn to read in the early grades face daunting challenges in school, falling farther and farther behind each year. 100% of the children participating in Reading Results’ program show measurable improvement in their reading skills.

“A student who can’t read on grade level by third grade is four times less likely to graduate by age 19 than a child who does read proficiently by that time. Add poverty to the mix, and a student is 13 times less likely to graduate on time than his or her proficient, wealthier peer.”
