Third Grade Reading/Remedial Reading Programs



Governor Kasich proposed a third grade reading guarantee, but it hasn’t been approved by the legislature. What are the supplemental and remedial programs for struggling readers now?  What would be done differently if the third grade reading guarantee were in place?

    This was a very interesting program. The most natural place for extending oportunity is summer school in the public schools. Having summers off is wasted time for at risk students.
