Literacy Can’t Wait

Almost 2 out of every 3 students
in the U.S. cannot read at grade level

The literacy crisis is at alarming levels. Only around one-third of U.S. students can read proficiently. Without quick action, these students go on to have lasting struggles with literacy, stunting their opportunities for success and contributions in both their professional and private life. There is good news, though — the crisis is preventable.

 Teachers need access to training that works to help students overcome reading gaps and reach grade level, if not above it. Structured literacy based on the science of reading can ensure that every student learns to read, regardless of their starting point.

Your donation to the IMSE Foundation goes toward training a teacher in this proven method.
