In October 2014, we held the second Growing Healthy Readers Half-Day Literacy Conference.
About the Campaign for Grade Level Reading
The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading is a collaborative effort by foundations, nonprofit partners, business leaders, government agencies, states and communities across the nation to ensure that more children in low-income families succeed in school and graduate prepared for college, a career, and active citizenship. The Campaign focuses on an important predictor of school success and high school graduation—grade-level reading by the end of third grade.
Reach Out and Read of Greater New York, United Way of New York City, and Scholastic Inc. are cohosting Growing Healthy Readers: Half -Day Literacy Conference to bring together educators, medical providers, policy makers, children’s advocates, and early childhood specialists to focus on strategies to ensure that children from at-risk families develop on-track for success in school, and highlight findings from the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading.
