It is predicted that if a child is not reading proficiently in the 4th grade, he or she will have approximately a 78% chance of not catching up.
In South Carolina, only 34% of fourth-grade students scored at or above proficient in reading in 2019.
2/3 of students who cannot read proficiently by the end of the 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare.
“The most important thing we teach is reading. The more affluent a reader you are, the more successful student you are likely to be.”
