Michigan Education Corps - Reading Corps

Michigan Educations Corps - Reading Corps

Learning to read by grade three is a critical benchmark that marks the shift from students learning to read to students reading to learn. Students who do not read proficiently by grade three are four times more likely than proficient readers to drop out of high school. Michigan Education Corps - Reading Corps, administered by Hope Network, is a replication of the transformational Minnesota Reading Corps. AmeriCorps members advance over 3,000 students toward becoming proficient readers by the end of 3rd grade.
