Double Jeopardy: How Poverty and Third-Grade Reading Skills Influence High School Graduation
A new report, Double Jeopardy: How Poverty & Third-Grade Reading Skills Influence High School Graduation, finds that students who don't read proficiently by third grade are four times more likely to leave without a diploma than proficient readers. The report, funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, is a longitudinal study of nearly 4,000 students and their parents. It is notable in breaking down for the first time the likelihood of graduation by different reading skill levels and poverty experiences.
