Third party organizations have recognized the value of our program—in particular, firms that help state legislators understand issues and see model solutions that can be supported with bi-partisan bills that move literacy forward for summer literacy programs for elementary students.
Based on a successful program we deployed in Michigan, where the state matched school funding for the Kids Read Now summer program, more than 10 states are moving ahead with bills to boost summer learning. Using the success in Michigan, we have provided bill language for states to use that can and will move their literacy efforts forward.
Arkansas, Connecticut, Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan, New York, North Dakota, New York, North Dakota, Utah, Washington DC, and others are all moving ahead in different ways to boost their state’s focus on summer learning and to help their students reverse the summer reading slide in a proven, affordable way.
If you would like to help support our efforts and/or encourage your state legislators to act, please contact us.
