Reading proficiency is an essential skill for success in the 21st Century. A recent study found that 22% of Title I children that are not proficient in reading by 3rd grade do not graduate from high school. Scholars estimate that the cost to the nation of just one high school dropout is $292,000 over the working life of that student. Low literacy among Title I children today will cost our nation millions of dollars tomorrow in low wages, lost taxes, welfare benefits, crime, and incarceration. Easy access to reading materials provided in this set, regardless of children's reading ability, increases the amount of time they read for fun. By having these culturally relevant, age appropriate, and gender responsive books easily accessible for students would not only reduce negative life outcomes in the future, but would have an immediate positive effect on their reading motivation, confidence, and achievement today.
