The International Dyslexia Association: Why is Third Grade so Important? | Dyslexia Today | Scoop.it

So third grade constitutes a critical transition—a “pivot point,” says Donald J. Hernandez, a professor of sociology at Hunter College. Hernandez conducted and released a study last year called “Double Jeopardy: How Third-Grade Reading Skills and Poverty Influence High School Graduation.” This study found that third graders who lack proficiency in reading are four times more likely to become high school dropouts.
