Louisville, KY – Every 1 Reads is a bold community-wide effort to have every child in Jefferson County (Kentucky) Public Schools reading at or above grade level. Every 1 Reads helps children become better readers.
The result: The number of children reading below grade level is now approximately 8.5 percent – down from nearly 20 percent before the Every1Reads initiative started. The program has drawn 7,600 volunteers and community funding of over $7 million, according to an article Business First.
