Raising Readers is Everyone's Business
Educated workers are critical to the 21st century workforce.
Children who read proficiently by the end of third grade are more likely to succeed academically and graduate from high school prepared for college and careers. One in four children in Pima County is not reaching this crucial benchmark.
Join us by attending this Business Breakfast because Raising Readers is Everyone's Business!
