Tackle Reading!

20140916_125313_resized_1

The USA ranks #24th in literacy. Research shows children who do not read on grade level by the time they are 9 years old are more likely to fail and even drop out of school. National reading tests show that while 66% of our 9 year olds read below grade level, 80% of 9 year olds from low-income schools read below grade level. 32 million adults, 14% of our population, can’t read. What’s more shocking is that we have not moved the needle in the past 10 years. We can change these statistics today when we tackle reading together.

Creative Minds Publications is ready to tackle reading with the help of some NFL players and individuals in the entertainment industry. Nationally recognized urban literacy specialist and author, Kathryn Starke, is creating a new book that will be put directly in the hands of children, families, and teachers in Title I/inner city elementary schools throughout the country. Published by Creative Minds Publications, this book will have teaching tips from experts, lesson ideas from fellow educators, and stories from celebrity readers. Upon release, the Tackle Reading tour will take place to provide professional development and speaking engagements in urban education nationwide. We need your help to donate these books to your own school communities.
