Why It's Important
3rd grade represents a pivotal milestone in education. Up until third grade a child is “learning-to-read.” After third grade a child is “reading to learn.” According to the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, children who are not reading proficiently by third grade are 4 times more likely to not graduate from high school.
