Turning the Page: Refocusing Massachusetts for Reading Success

This report exposes the high costs of childhood reading failure and examines external and in-school barriers to reading achievement within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Recommendations featured in this report include the need to conduct early and ongoing assessments of children’s language and reading and of the quality of services and supports; bring language-rich, rigorous and engaging reading curricula into early education and care settings, as well as PreK-3rd grade classrooms; and expand and strengthen work with families across learning settings and within communities.
