Study: Alabama Reading Initiative is Working

Reading proficiency has improved significantly in those schools participating in the Alabama Reading Initiative, outpacing those in which the ARI has not been implemented. The State Board of Education's press release has more information, including this: "Of the top 10 schools making the most gains in Alabama, every school is an ARI or ARFI school. Of the 35 top scoring K-3 schools all but seven are ARI or ARFI (Alabama Reading First Initiative) schools."
