3rd Grade Reading Scores Project #of Prison Cells?
Last comment by PoliticsNation 2 years, 4 months ago.

Take Me To Post Comment Form

An educator informed me that some states use third/fourth grade reading scores to project the number of prison cells they’re going to need 10 years later. If this is true- it's appalling and sad. What can we do in Liberty County to help improve reading scores? How many programs do we have outside of the classroom to address literacy? Is this a myth?

My response (after doing research).

1.Monitor and respond to chronic absenteeism in pre-K and kindergarten. The Kids most at risk are the ones missing 25 to 30 days a year. If we don't intervene, those are our future dropouts.

Please offer feed-back.

sebe, your assessment is spot on.

Our public school teachers are burdened with far too much administration and reporting mostly imposed on them by Federal authorities and some by the State.

I think we need to get back closer to the basics.

@tot/seb-how do we get back to the basics? I also believe it takes a village to raise a child. I spend most of my days advocating for the poor, illiterate and abused.

It's hard to prepare a child for success when their parents can't read or write. We need more programs to address literacy in the home.

My recommendation:

Host literacy and GED classes in the neighborhoods with low literacy rates. We cant wait on them to come to us-we need to reach out to them. If we can set up a building to pass out free lunch we can use that same building to facilitate class.

I don't think were doing enough in Liberty County to help at risk populations. I see too many young women and men settling for 2 dollar rent or hanging out at the gazebo by the Coastal bank instead of improving their employment skills or trying to find employment.
