When it comes to reading, we simply have to make more progress. Reading is the first basic -- the very foundation for all other learning -- and every child simply has to learn how to read English, and learn how to read it well. Unfortunately, too many of our children are still struggling when it comes to reading, even though as a nation we are well above the international average.

Too often, the children who struggle with reading early on fall farther behind in school, fill up our special ed classes or lose interest, give up, and drop out. This is why I have been stressing the importance of reading and improved literacy for such a long time. I am convinced that a strong and early focus on reading will go a long way to reducing special education and remedial costs, reducing truancy, and keeping more young people from dropping out of school.

What makes a better reading program? It is the Reading Tutors! Score Learning centers helps children ages 4 to 14 make significant academic progress in an innovative tutoring environment.
