Join us on Tuesday, October 5th at 2 pm EST to hear from
Arianne B. Weldon, MPH, Strategic Innovation Manager & GGR Campaign Director, at our weekly Statewide Parent Education and Support Group meeting. The topic is: Early Literacy—The Great Equalizer.
Children who can’t read proficiently by the end of third grade are more likely to drop out of high school compared to those who can. They’re also more likely to experience poor health and discipline problems. As adults they’re more likely to be unemployed, spend time in prison, and contend with shorter life expectancies. This presentation will provide a brief summary of what we’ve learned and what we need to do next so that all children in Georgia are proficient readers by the end of third grade, paving the way to improved outcomes throughout school and life.
