Welcome to the RIF Community

The Issue

There is a significant literacy crisis in America today. Recent NAEP scores highlight that 65% of 4th grade students are not reading at NAEP proficient levels in 2019.  Reading performance for both 4th and 8th graders dropped from the last NAEP testing in 2017 to the most recent testing in 2019.  Learn more about the children’s literacy issue.

Get Your State Statistics

From 2017 NAEP testing to 2019 testing, 17 states showed a decrease in reading scores, 1 showed an increase, and 34 had no significant change. Check out RIF’s Literacy Facts map to see how children in your state are performing. Literacy Map →
