Spring reading scores show signs of improvement

One year into an $11.25 million-a-year literacy initiative, Idaho reading scores are trending upward, reports Kevin Richert of Idaho Education News. More kindergarten through third-grade students are reading at grade level -- and fewer students are lagging behind. But the most recent reading scores also illustrate the task at hand. At the end of the 2016-17 school year, more than 23,000 K-3 students still could not read at grade level. You can read Richert’s full report here.
