EDUCATION

You are here

Nationally, two-thirds of students are not reading on grade level by 4th grade. That proportion rises to four-fifths for children from low-wage families. Our work in the area of early grade literacy will enable us to identify, fuel and replicate best practices in our local schools. 23% of UWCA funds contribute to the success of children, youth and adults through education.
