AND...Students who don't read proficiently by the end of the 3rd grade are 4 times more likely to drop out of school.
This problem affects not only your child in school, but at home with you too.
I understand that all too well. Two of my kids struggled with reading, so I know how that frustration feels.
And if your child is in fourth grade and higher, here’s the statistic that will SHOCK YOU:
Your school has a 74% chance of NOT helping your child EVER reach grade level.
Why is that?
After about the fourth grade, instruction in school takes a big change in direction. Teachers switch their focus from learning to read to reading to learn.
In general, schools stop teaching students HOW to read, and expect them to be able to USE the skill of reading to learn the content in the class.
That's a BIG PROBLEM for students who haven't mastered reading yet.
Fortunately, there is a CLEAR PATH for students to avoid this statistic, and it has to do with developing perhaps the most essential skill for reading...and it’s one that most schools DON’T teach....EVER
