About Us

We believe all children deserve to learn to read, and all teachers can learn to teach them.

Our Mission

The mission of The Reading League is to advance the awareness, understanding, and use of evidence-aligned reading instruction.

Our Vision

The Reading League’s vision is that all educators who teach students to read will use evidence-aligned practices, resulting in successful reading outcomes for their learners.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

The Reading League is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB). To change inequitable social structures, all humans must be empowered with literacy.
