Bill Harris hosts this live program that examines one of the most pressing issues facing our community - the problem of low literacy rates among preschool aged children. Children entering school with high literacy skills are "ready to learn" and move to the head of the class. Children with weak reading skills begin school at a disadvantage, a gap that may grow wider as their educational experiece proceeds. How can we break the cycle?
WGTE Public Media will stream the public event live on the Knowledge Stream Website (http://www.knowledgestream.org.) Citizens may attend the meeting virtually and provide feedback by posting comments live during the event.
