Stop the perpetuation of socio-economic, racial and ethnic inequities 

67% of 4th grade Kansas Kids cannot read

Less than 20% of black students are proficient readers

There is a strong correlation between poverty and literacy issues. Only 5% of Americans with strong literacy skills live in poverty.

 

Dyslexia is hereditary, therefore it passes along reading difficulties from generation to generation - perpetuating the poverty cycle.

We can end the cycle if we identify struggling students early and get them up-to-speed.

Less than 50% of Hispanic students are proficient readers

40% of Prisoners are dyslexic

If you can't read, you can't work a traditional job. You are left to whatever means possible to make ends meet.

 

By focusing on reading difficulties, we are truly fighting the war on drugs or crime.

The U.S. Department of Justice says that the link between academic failure and delinquency, violence, and crime is welded to reading failure.
