Campaign for Grade-Level Reading

11.29.2017

The state of Arkansas has set an ambitious goal of moving from 37 percent of third graders reading on grade level to 80 percent by the year 2030. The Arkansas Campaign for Grade-Level Reading and its partners will discuss how they will achieve this goal by engaging parents, ensuring children are ready for kindergarten, reducing chronic absenteeism, equipping teachers to use the science of reading, and stopping summer learning loss. 

A board member for the Clinton School Center on Community Philanthropy, Ralph Smith, will moderate a panel of Dr. Chad Rodgers (Medical Director, Arkansas Foundation for Medical Care), Johnny Key (Commissioner, Arkansas Department of Education), and Angela Duran (Campaign Director, Arkansas Campaign for Grade-Level Reading).
