Update June 18, 2022: Here is the video from our event. You can use the question form below if you have more questions — we’ll keep working on getting answers.
From families to teachers, policymakers to philanthropists — EdNC gets questions from so many groups about what the science of reading is, how implementation is going, and where we stack up among other states on this same journey.
On Thursday, June 9, I’m going to sit down with national and state leaders to talk literacy instruction. We’re going to look at North Carolina’s science of reading law and talk about how it compares to similar laws enacted or under consideration in other states. We’re going to get an update on how implementation efforts are going — and ask about how they could be going better.
We’re soliciting your questions. We’re going to ask them live. If you can’t join us in Raleigh, we’re videotaping the event so you’ll still get to hear the answers.
Much has been written about the importance of reading proficiency by third grade. Much more has been written about our state’s and nation’s failures in this regard. So the stakes are high to get it right. As things move fast in both the General Assembly and with our state education authorities, it’s important to pause and make sure all stakeholder questions are answered.
