The plan to change how kids in Wisconsin read is one its way to Governor Evers.
The Wisconsin Senate yesterday approved the plan which will have schools go back to teaching phonics as the basis for reading, and focus on making sure that kids are reading properly by the fourth grade. Education advocates say the plan is a game changer, and should help most of the 70-percent of Wisconsin fourth graders who cannot read at grade level. The governor may veto the plan. He’s not on board with certain provisions that would have kids take third-grade reading classes until they can hit their fourth-grade reading goals.
