A Literacy New Deal? Partnering to Strengthen Literacy

Dear PASE Network,

PASE and ExpandED Schools recently held a strategic discussion on literacy. We are sharing a summary of that conversation with the field, and look forward to building partnerships in this effort.

Staffing and capacity affect this topic as well as many others, and we are resharing our earlier summary on staffing issues in the afterschool field as well.

We hope you will share these reports with your colleagues, and we look forward to partnering with you as we address these issues.
