Fall 2021 PALS data is available and the PALS office has summarized their analysis. We have a literacy crisis on our hands and we know we need a significant change...no more bandaids! It's time to "turn a new leaf" for all children in Virginia and invest in our future.
Delegate Carrie Coyner has shared a comprehensive approach to build a statewide literacy plan through legislation and this could be exactly what we need to make a significant change.
