What happens when older students struggle to read? We asked. You answered.

When students get to middle and high school without strong reading skills, the results can be devastating. In response to a recent Chalkbeat survey, dozens of parents and educators described secondary students who refuse to read out loud for fear of being teased, who can’t understand math word problems or science vocabulary, and gradually give up on school altogether. They worried such students face poor job prospects and bleak futures. One mother called the distress faced by older struggling readers “astronomical.” But respondents also had lots of ideas for helping older struggling readers. It’s an area ripe for attention, since most states and districts have focused recent reading improvement on early elementary students.

Wide-ranging education bill headed to DeWine’s desk

A bill changing multiple K-12 education laws in Ohio is headed to Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s desk. If signed, the bill would have a wide array of effects on families in the Miami Valley and across the state, from families who have EdChoice private-school scholarships to families who have dyslexic students. The bill also extends schools’ ability to hire substitute teachers who have just a high school diploma by two years, something districts began to do last year to combat a shortage of substitute teachers.

California to create teaching credential covering pre-K through 3rd grade that requires literacy training

The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing agreed this week to create a new teaching credential for pre-kindergarten through third grade that will require teacher candidates to show they are trained in how to teach reading. The decision came after the commission addressed criticisms that a separate credential that lacked identical literacy instruction coursework and a reading performance test could undermine separate efforts to improve reading instruction in elementary grades.
