PROBLEM BRIEF

▾▾▾▾▾

Low-income and underserved children start kindergarten 12-14 months behind their peers in pre-literacy and language skills, and 1.8M are unprepared for kindergarten success when they begin school. To be on track for reading success by the key 3rd grade marker, all children must receive the literacy instruction and support to thrive.
