Seeing the work that the Children's Literacy Initiative has accomplished within the public school system of Philadelphia has truly renewed my faith that there are people in this world working to make a real difference--and succeeding. The current climate in our public schools has the potential to create an even larger divide between the upper and lower classes of our country, and this divide is driven mostly by issues of literacy. The work that CLI does deserves to be championed because they have managed to develop a set of best practices that not only promote literacy in a traditional sense, but in every aspect of the curriculum, giving students the tools they need to have more agency in their pursuit of knowledge as a whole. I was so moved by the commitment I witnessed that I was driven to find out more about their work across the nation. Their efforts to advocate for equal education for all should be celebrated and supported.

I worked with a teacher who received professional development via Children's Literacy Initiative and she could not say enough about how happy she was with the program! Thrilled! She compared herself to her peers and felt much better prepared to go out into the field. She spoke with me at length about the strategies she learned to work with struggling readers and I was moved by her real life examples. Since my interaction with this teacher I have performed my own research and it is clear that Children's Literacy Initiative is exactly the type of organization we want working with our teachers to help maximize student achievement.

I heard firsthand from a CLI trained teacher that the CLI professional development was by far the best she had ever received. She said she planned to use the knowledge gained throughout her entire career!
