The Florida Right-to-Read Effort.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Elementary and Secondary Education.
The right-to-read effort in Florida is a statewide program to encourage and expand the teaching and learning of reading on all educational levels. The program depends on the coordination of state-level activities with activities of local school districts, colleges, and universities. State-level activities include program development, assessment, management of funds, personnel training, and preparation and distribution of reports on local right-to-read programs. Local school activities include identification of people willing to participate in right-to-read programs and identification of training and resource needs in the community. College activities include providing descriptions of reading programs, preparing and training reading teachers, assisting local school districts, and evaluating reading deficiencies of entering students. A tentative list of reports to be issued by the Florida Department of Education is included. (AL)
