Connecticut Right to Read Law
In a recent op-ed submitted to the Connecticut Post, State Senator Patricia Billie Miller discusses legislation she authored that supports curriculum and professional development aligned to the Science of Reading. The ‘Right to Read’ legislation recently became law and requires Connecticut school districts to implement at least one of seven evidence-based, state-approved early literacy curriculum programs in K-3 classrooms, within the next school year.
Senator Miller discusses her years-long effort to increase literacy achievement in Connecticut. Miller states, “It is a considerable point of pride for our legislature, the Connecticut State Department of Education, and this administration that we have all committed to doing the hard, systemic work that will make schools more successful for students.”
