of Virginia’s children are NOT
READY for kindergarten.
Too many of Virginia’s children are struggling when they enter kindergarten. In fact, 1 in 4 are not meeting literacy benchmarks. The first eight years matter and build a strong foundation for learning.
Too many of our children are struggling when they enter kindergarten and cannot read by third grade. When our children don’t have a strong foundation in reading, math + writing they will struggle in K-12, higher education + the workforce.
The first eight years matter + build a strong foundation for learning. When children cannot read, they cannot learn. Third grade is a critical benchmark. By third grade if a child is not reading on grade level, they are 4x MORE likely to drop out of school.
EVERY child deserves the opportunity to learn, grow + thrive. Early literacy matters for all children. Together, WE can make sure every child is ready to read + learn by third grade.
