MecklenburgACTS.org, Fix Read to Achieve Now, and a coalition of concerned North Carolina parents have joined together to urge their state representatives to end the Read to Achieve program, and to invest instead in other strategies for improving reading skills, such as prekindergarten and additional assistance in earlier grades.

Pamela Grundy of MecklenburgACTS.org is actively seeking local parents with first-hand experience of the program, and encourages them to reach out and share her group's mission with other parents in the community. Anyone interested in helping spread the word should contact info@mecklenburgacts.org.

Additional information about the campaign and how to contact legislators can be found on the websites of MecklenburgACTS.org and Fix Read to Achieve Now (rtanc.org).
