“Students would not get this rigorous additional reading instruction that they need in order to help them become proficient readers without our Reading Corps tutors. What’s exciting about Reading Corps is that it is really allowing us to be proactive in helping students become proficient readers and catching them before they fall too far behind, rather than being reactive and trying to catch up them up after the reading gap has widened to a level that makes it extremely difficult for them to catch up.”
Reading Corps and Math Corps combine the people power of AmeriCorps and the science of learning to provide a solution to help narrow achievement gaps and help students become successful learners by the end of third and eighth grade.
