  • District partners with researchers to promote reading

    Learning to read is like learning to walk or ride a bicycle. Completing those tasks is a challenge at first, but, eventually children learn to accomplish them without thinking. They become as easy to perform as breathing. Some people, however, continue to struggle into adulthood with reading.
