The proceedings of the Reading for Progress Conference, held on Hilo (Hawaii) on 8 March 1975, are contained in this report. The purpose of this conference was a "refocus" on the reading problems of Hawaii's youth, as viewed by educators, the business and labor community, social agencies, and other government officials. This document includes a list of conference recommendations, addresses and panel sessions, a summary of group discussions, the conference conclusion, and four appendixes with additional material related to the conference. Four of the recommendations articulated at the conference are as follows: organize a group representing government agencies, the schools, business and industry, and community segments to lead, coordinate, and demonstrate an effective reading program for Hawaii County; set standards for reading proficiency and hold responsible agencies publicly accountable and participating persons individually accountable; establish a reading referral and cordination network in Hawaii County; and recommend and obtain preservice and inservice teacher training in reading.
