88% of first graders who are below grade level in reading will continue to read below grade level in 4th grade without intervention.
During the summer months, students who do not practice what they learned during the school year are behind once the new school year starts.
Yale University found that 3/4 of students who were poor readers in the 3rd grade remained poor readers in high school.
