"When a student is in the 3rd, 7th or even 10th grade and continues to struggle with reading basics, schools don’t have time to waste. They need to provide intensive, engaging instruction that targets kids where they are and gets them to where they need to be—quickly."

—Margery Mayer, President, Scholastic Education
