• By the time children from low-income families enter grade school, their proficiency in reading has already become an issue.
• 47 percent of fourth graders from low-income families read below the basic level.
• 50 percent of Black fourth graders scored below the basic level, as do 47 percent of Hispanic and 49 percent of American Indian fourth graders.
