Welcome Fellow Parent!

A New World

We’re so excited that you’ve reached this point in your journey. You have changed the course of history for your child and your school district - you should be very proud of yourself! There’s a special kind of person who continues on this mission to help even more children learn to read. Now you have an opportunity to leverage your success and broaden your impact across your state and across the country.

Step 8 will inspire you and explore how you can have an impact for millions of children, children whose names you may never know. We have interviewed successful parent groups and thought leaders. If you’re like us you become addicted to the success and the smiles on families’ faces as they thank you for your work. How can you stop now that you know the injustice and have found a way to right that wrong? There is a feeling that you get when you go into a classroom and hear a teacher doing a lesson based on the science and hear children in that very moment learning to read. That feeling is indescribable. Our work is not done until every child learns to read!
