Facebook | Reading Tree

Facebook Reading Tree: "Interesting stats from the Depts of Education and Health & Human Services: (1) It is estimated that more than $2 billion is spent each year on students who repeat a grade because they have reading problems, and (2) Since 1983, more than 10 million Americans reached the 12th grade without having learned to read at a ba...sic level. In the same period, more than 6 million Americans dropped out of high school altogether."
Did you know that readiness levels for kids entering school can be directly tied to income levels?   Education is the Key! Begin with the end in mind. Share the joy of reading with a child as often as possible.


Time to get back on track!  Are you ready!
