The first episode of The Fight for Grade-Level Reading features our interview with Ron Fairchild. He’s the director of the Support Center at the national Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, which is designed to highlight the most successful programs implemented by the more than 390 different communities participating in the fight for grade-level reading.
We also want to hear from you. You can share your experiences in the fight for grade-level reading by connecting with us at firstname.lastname@example.org, facebook.com/fightforglr or by leaving us a message at 941-361-4820. You can also record a voice memo on your phone and email it to us — we may include some of those messages in future episodes of the podcast.
