A Problem Still in Search of a Solution: A State Policy Roadmap for Improving Early Reading Proficiency

Kathy Christie, Stephanie Rose
September 2012

This paper provides a first-of-its-kind state policy roadmap. Such a roadmap, when combined with authoritative state leadership, can:

  •  Drive effective program design and implementation
  •  Improve practice by strengthening classroom instruction, student assessments, and alternative interventions
  • Strengthen curricular alignment across the P-3 spectrum
  •  Create systemic solutions, not just results
  •  Engage stakeholders, including state leaders, teacher prep institutions, educators, students, and families in continuous improvement.
