Bridges4Kids LogoWrightslaw Explains Reading and No Child Left Behind
Wrightslaw, November 2003

The U. S. Department of Education published these findings in the Nation's Report Card:

  • Only 32 percent of 4th graders are proficient readers.

  • Only 33 percent of 8th graders are proficient readers.

  • Only 36 percent of 12th graders are proficient readers.

Because two-thirds of students are not proficient readers when they graduate from high school, No Child Left Behind focuses on teaching children to read.
 
Marianne writes: "My child receives special education - does this law apply to him?" Yes!
