Lets hear from Mississipi Governor Phil Bryant as we "head on down to Jackson" on the topic of getting extra funding for IIIrd grade Literacy Coaches for his State. This is great as students, especially those in younger grades with developmental problems need help to keep up in lower grades so they can succeed scholastically down the road in higher grades.
"We know that children must be able to read in order to succeed, & we know that highly-qualified teachers have a positive effect on student achievement."
