Elementary educators have a dramatic impact on students’ reading skills—and their future achievement levels. Students who master early literacy skills in the elementary grades are four times more likely to graduate high school and three times more likely to enroll in college, yet NAEP shows nearly two-thirds of our fourth-graders don’t read proficiently.
