Report highlights need for literacy focus in Mich.
One in three students in parts of Michigan are not reading at grade level, according to a review of student achievement in 20 districts. Officials say the data is part of a national trend that emphasizes the need to rally around schools, students and parents to improve literacy. "Children who are not reading at grade level by the end of third grade are more likely to not graduate from high school, which perpetuates the cycle of not going to college and not getting into the workforce," said Lindsay McHolme, director of the Community Literacy Initiative, which compiled the report.
