Review for Children's Literacy Initiative, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
