The Role of the Elementary School Principal in Achieving the Right to Read Goal.
Allen, James E., Jr.
Elementary principals are encouraged to take active roles in furthering the "right-to-read" effort. Because they are in positions which allow them to determine school character and activities, they should provide leadership within their communities and contribute to the national effort. The establishment of federal offices to administer the "right-to-read" program will provide a central organization. Beyond it, individual schools should work through parent organizations, volunteer programs, etc. to increase literacy among children. Suggestions for increasing libraries, improving instruction, and creating parental involvement are given. (MS)
