State’s Reading Struggles Overview

The state of North Carolina needs to take a look at it’s higher education programs and how they train teachers to teach reading to our children. Teachers need to be taught about dyslexia and how these children learn. Read to Achieve will keep failing if the needs of these students are continually overlooked. -Decoding Dyslexia North Carolina #SayDyslexia

“Only 52 percent of first graders in North Carolina demonstrate reading comprehension, according to another report presented by Tara Galloway, director of K-3 Literacy at the State Department of Public Instruction. That number is 56 percent for second grade students, and the pass rate on third-grade end-of-year reading tests is only 55.9 percent. Over time, that pass rate has declined.”
