DREAM BIG ON EDUCATION
Reading leads to Learning. Learning leads to Opportunity. We want to do everything we can do to open new doors for our children. The workforce of 2030 is currently in our state's Pre-K and early elementary system, and what we do now to make sure our children are learning will determine our future. Significant progress has already been made with the Right to Read Act, the Governor's RISE initiative, and other education legislation.
We want to build on these initiatives.
We are proposing legislation that will:
- Create an approved list for curricula vetted by the ADE to help guide school districts in choosing the best curricula for science of reading and structured literacy curricula.
- Mandate a higher education curricula to include brain science of reading and structured literacy.
- Ensure all school districts submit and implement a literacy plan.
