As educators you know the important role reading plays in a good education. We just want to share with you some facts that we want you to know.

At ReadingPaysMore our mission is to create a culture of reading so that every child is reading and comprehending ABOVE grade level. And we cannot do it without you. We thank you for your service to our children. Dr. Dahlia Hall said it best, “It’s not about teaching the child to read. It’s about teaching the children to love to read.”

Did you know that 33% of high school graduates never read another book the rest of their lives? Your inspiration can go a long way to helping students to continue to enjoy reading after high school. The percentage is even higher with 42% never reading another book after college graduation. As an educator, you have the power to influence students in becoming life-long learners because you know that reading is the basis for making positive contributions in their communities.

Here are some more statistics on reading and accomplishing one’s goals in life:

  • 80% of U.S. families did not buy or read a book last year.
  • 70% of U.S. adults have not been in a book store in the last five years.
  • 57% of new books are not read to completion.

The more a child reads, the likelier he or she is able to understand the emotions of others. Reading one hour a day in your chosen field will make that person an international expert in seven years.

Here are some best practices to help your students read and comprehend above grade level:

heart Become a success partner with parents, students and community members by providing resources to foster better reading habits to create a culture of reading in the child’s home and community.
