Don't Try to Bridge the Literacy Gap Alone
González, Ramón M.
Phi Delta Kappan, v96 n6 p55-58 Mar 2015
The author is a middle school principal who has spent a decade working on improving literacy among his largely socio-economically disadvantaged student body. Experience and research have shown, the author says, that a successful effort to bridge the literacy gap between children who live in poverty and middle-class students requires a concerted effort by multiple school agencies, nonprofits, foundations, and others to provide the academic support and extracurricular opportunities they need but otherwise won't get.
