It’s true.  If a child has not learned how to read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade – well – to put it mildly, he’s in trouble!

What’s more, here is what happens later on when parents and teachers FAIL to make certain that their first through third graders LEARN TO READ:

 

Illiteracy Statistics

In a study of 20 ‘high income’ countries, the US ranked 12th on literacy tests. Illiteracy has become such a serious problem in our country that 44 million adults are now unable to read a simple story to their child. A few other shocking facts:

 

  • 7 million Americans are illiterate.
  • 50 percent of adults cannot read a book written at an eighth grade level.
  • 20 percent of Americans are functionally illiterate and read below a 5th grade level.
  • 30 million Americans cannot read a simple sentence.

 

Just about everything has been blamed for the fact that far too many of our children are struggling in reading, that far too many of our third graders cannot read all the words on the page proficiently.  There’s been finger-pointing accusations such as the following:

  • It’s the parent’s fault

  • It’s the fault of the unions!

  • Those government bureaucrats are hindering teachers because of all their ridiculous requirements.

  • My child has a bad teacher!

  • My child must be ADD or ADHD or hyperactive!

  • My child hates school!

  • Our government isn’t giving teachers enough money!

Why Johnny Can’t Get a Job!

Why Johnny Can’t Get a Job!

Why Johnny Might End up In Prison!

Why Johnny Can’t Make the Team!

 

Can anyone remember when you could get a job even if you didn’t know how to read?

Dads, Moms, Educators, maybe your generation could get that kind of a job, but in today’s world, a child will not be able to get a job without knowing how to read. People who cannot read or write well:

* cannot read the advertisements for jobs in the newspaper or on the internet (1 in 7 adults cannot even read this blog). 

*cannot write a resume or fill out an application for employment

*cannot read directions or write a note so they will not be considered for hire as a reliable employee.”

 

KIDS TODAY NEED TO KNOW HOW TO READ IN ORDER TO GET A JOB.

 

They certainly know this in California!  

In fact, California prison officials know that there might as well be a bumper sticker that says, “Read or go to jail.”  This is because one of main contributors for predicting needed construction for future prisons in California is the number of students that cannot read by the end of fourth grade. 

As Dr. Lynell Burmark stated, “The reality is that in California, at least, if you don’t know how to read by the end of fourth grade, the state is building you a prison cell.”

What is the end result of illiteracy for far too many young people in California?  If you can’t read by the fourth grade, you’re fate might well be to spend your life as an adult behind bars. 

 

KIDS TODAY NEED TO KNOW HOW TO READ IN ORDER TO STAY OUT OF JAIL. 

 

It’s so sad, because there are opportunities for kids to tremendously better themselves, opportunities that are making big differences especially in the lives of students coming from oppressed living standards.  For example, did you know that a peer-reviewed study of the Chicago Debate League – a league that reaches out to African American Males – tells us that:

“African American male students raised their GPAs by 50% of a letter grade and were 70% more likely to graduate from high school than non-debating peers. Compared to their non-debating peers, African American male debaters were 70% more likely to reach the ACT College Ready benchmark in Reading and twice as likely to reach the College Ready benchmark in English.”

Parents, teachers, you can make a difference just by getting your student involved with a debate team.  However, he/she first needs to learn how to read every word on every page.

 

KIDS TODAY NEED TO KNOW HOW TO READ IN ORDER TO JOIN A DEBATE TEAM? 

Here are two BAD statistics: 

1)   In inner cities and poor rural areas, 68% of low-income fourth graders cannot read at a basic level. 

2)   We only have 2% of child’s lifetime to teach him how to read. That’s a very small window of opportunity!

Now, here are two GOOD statistics: 

1)   You can teach a child to read every word on every page by using a step-by-step systematic phonics program.

2)   You can teach a child to read every word on every page for less than $10.00!

 

Far too many parents are telling us that: “I just know my student does not have ADD or ADHD OR dyslexia.  I know my child could learn to read if he was just given a step-by-step, easy to teach program where he could learn all the letter sounds and how to blend them. “

 

Why not get started with your student today? 

There is an affordable, simple, fun-to-use, easy-to-teach, step-by-step plan. 

Systematic phonics works!
