Attention parents: Talk to us about how your kids are doing at reading

We’re taking an in-depth look at Idaho’s $26 million push to help young students read, and we want your help.

If you’re the parent of a kindergarten through third-grade student, we’d like to ask you some questions:

Do you think your school is doing a good job of teaching your child to read?

Are you confident that your child will have the reading skills needed to succeed?

If your child is getting extra reading help, is it making a difference?

Does the Idaho Reading Indicator test help you understand how your child is doing?

As a parent, do you have the tools you need to help your child learn to read?

You get the general idea.

Our series will run in December, but let’s talk before that. If you’d like to talk, send me an email at [email protected].
