Over one third of Wisconsin students are unable to read at grade level and our state’s Black children have the lowest reading scores in the nation. Reading below grade level brings both short term and long term challenges, from a lower chance of graduating high school to a higher chance of living in poverty.
Join the Tommy G. Thompson Center on Public Leadership for a luncheon discussion with state and national experts on how Wisconsin can address our literacy crisis.
The Thompson Center Summit on Early Literacy Summit will be held February 8, 2023 at the Monona Terrace. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m. Program begins at 11:30 a.m.
