How Reading Is Taught

Nov 12, 2019

Columbus City Schools Superintendent Talisa Dixon last month increased the minimum reading score that third graders must achieve at the beginning of the year. 

The move means that 97% of the district’s third graders will be placed on a reading improvement plan this school year.

Teachers have protested the move, saying it’s a plot to inflate state report card scores and that it will shift too much attention away from students who really need help.
