Policymakers

As leaders at the state and local level, policymakers can use legislation to promote the importance of early reading and support programs aimed at ensuring that all students read proficiently by the end of third grade.

Policymakers can:

  • Support increased investment to raise the quality of existing pre-K programs, and make them accessible to more children.

  • Ensure that all teachers are trained in evidence-based practices for teaching reading.

  • Provide financial resources for summer learning programs.
