Third grade reading is the critical dividing line between learning to read and reading to learn. Three quarters of children who do not learn to read by third grade never catch up. They struggle to learn new concepts and ideas in social studies, science, and math. Consequently, these students begin to manifest coping behaviors like acting out and disrupting the classroom. Ultimately, these students are in danger of dropping out of school. Since high school dropouts are more likely to go to prison and/or to become teen parents, it is clear why 3rd grade reading is such a crucial and urgent issue. Turn the Page KC aims to change the story by mobilizing the community to achieve 3rd grade reading proficiency for every student in Kansas City. We need your help to create sustainable, system-wide change!
