The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading focuses on an important predictor of school success and high school graduation--grade-level reading by the end of third grade. The Campaign and the 140+ communities which have joined in this effort are dedicated to narrowing the achievement gap between children from low-income families and their more affluent peers.

To learn why this achievement gap occurs and how we can close it, please watch the Campaign's recent video: The Statisticks Lottery
