Special Guest Speaker: Andrew Fletcher, Director, DOE Universal Literacy
The focus is on Pre-K/3-K and Primary Education, with the objective: every New York kid reads at the 3rd grade level by 3rd grade.This is based on the fundamental educational principle that: 'Up to third grade, kids learn to read. After third grade, kids read to learn...'.We are inviting speakers from the DOE to speak on this subject - to understand how the DOE Universal Literacy Program works in our CB8 district, and how we as the CB8 community can support this important work.
