The Reading League works with school systems across the country to ensure all educators have the knowledge and skills they need to reach every student with reading instruction that works. Our work is regularly featured by media outlets around the country. Telling our story and celebrating our impact inspires support of our mission and in turn, helps us share the science of reading even faster.
