The Achievement Gap

Children from poor families enter school having been exposed, on average, to over 30 million fewer words than their more affluent peers.

A student who cannot read proficiently by 3rd grade is over 4 times more likely to drop out of school, which limits their own opportunities and continues the cycle of poverty in their communities

There is an almost 90% chance that a child who is a poor reader at the end of grade 1 will be a poor reader in grade 4.
