Why earlier is better

Results from South Carolina’s 2016 statewide assessment of SC READY, show that only 44% of third graders met or exceeded standards in English Language Arts, which includes reading. If a child does not master reading, every subject from social studies to science will be negatively affected and they will continue to fall behind.

Our goal is to get in front of this problem and create a successful model for South Carolina so that our children have a better, brighter future.
