California Reading Initiative, 1996.
Emmett, Terry
For the first year in "what seems like eons," California's school districts will see an influx of new money, a large portion of it earmarked for developing competency in reading for students in kindergarten through grade 3. The expanded funding for reading results from a consensus among policy makers that the achievement of early literacy should be a primary focus of district reform. Funding for reading improvement will come from two sources, federal Goals 2000 monies and state General Funds. In total, $200 million is available specifically for reading. The following constitute the major funded literacy activities: professional reading development for all K-3 teachers in research-based reading instruction; preservice training of teacher candidates in research-based reading instruction; full sets of core reading instruction materials for every K-3 student; and comprehensive reading leadership training.
