Campaign for Grade Level Reading

Campaign for Grade Level Reading

Reading proficiency by third grade is the most important predictor of high school graduation and career success. Yet every year, more than 80 percent of low-income children miss this crucial milestone.

Texas communities are part of the national Campaign — a collaborative effort by foundations, nonprofit partners, business leaders, government agencies, states and communities across the country to ensure that more children in low-income families succeed in school and graduate prepared for college, a career, and active citizenship. The Campaign focuses on an important predictor of school success and high school graduation—grade-level reading by the end of third grade.
