Breaking the Cycle of Illiteracy Through Professional Development
“Reading is the new civil right.”
– PHYLLIS HUNTER
Be a part of the change, your monthly donation helps provide books to kids. By gifting $10 a month, you are contributing to a better education for every student in Louisiana. Getting books into the hands of kids is a surefire way to help them reach their full literacy potential. Your gift also helps us to provide better resources, training, and support to educators, ensuring that every child, regardless of their background, has access to quality education.
Only 36% of US 4th graders are reading proficiently. Despite this, it is our belief that all children, regardless of background, can achieve school success when provided with highly effective teachers and supportive learning environments.
We believe that literacy and education are civil rights. We strive to achieve these rights in our communities through evidence based literacy, professional development, and interactive programs and courses for parents, teachers, and education professionals.
The Center is an education focused nonprofit focusing on literacy and learning. We tackle real-time issues such as ways to remediate struggling readers, differentiate instruction for diverse learners, and build and sustain collective capacity.
