Early Grade Reading

Students not proficient in reading by the end of third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school. Of all students who are not reading proficiently in third grade, Black and Latine children are two times more likely than white children to not graduate from high school.

Factors and systems indicators:
• Attendance
• Social-emotional learning and curriculum
