    All students should have an opportunity to learn to read and write so they can learn other subjects and fully participate in society. There should be a strong emphasis on achieving literacy for every student.


    Literacy is the ability to read and write.

    The literature presented to students for the practice of reading should be a mix of fun and educational. It’s also an opportunity to introduce students to other cultures from around the world and to literature from different times in history. To the extent such diverse material is used and discussed, it should be done to enhance the student experience and learning about other people and the world, but not so much that it’s a distraction from the essential learning objectives — to read and write effectively, including spelling, grammar, tone, style, context, and to learn and practice critical thinking skills.

    Students who are interested in achieving more should have an opportunity for guided learning to higher levels of reading and writing such as studying literature, notable authors, and writing in a variety of areas including fiction, non-fiction, academic research, business letters, and more.
