Join the National Center on Improving Literacy (NCIL) for an examination of reading achievement gaps and the policy and practical solutions that can help address these gaps.
This session will bring together a group of education stakeholders with a shared interest and expertise in improving literacy outcomes for students who are historically disadvantaged. Panelists will present data illustrating some of the most glaring problems with educational inequity in reading, and will discuss approaches for building educational equity through policy, partnerships, and practice.
Participants will receive access to a variety of free, evidence-based tools and resources.
