Peter D’Auria, The education reporter in VTDigger, Vermont’s online news outlet, has published a story on the need for a new Vermont Secretary of Education with expertise in the science of reading.
This is an unprecedented, exciting development in a state whose media has heretofore ignored the problem. IDA-NNEA urges all Vermonters who care about student reading to contact their State Senators and Representatives about the need for structured literacy legislation, and to contact their local School Board and Superintendent to find out how reading is taught in their own backyard. Vermont members of IDA-NNEA are organizing together to advance effective screening and reading instruction at the local and state levels. To get involved, contact Mack and Cynthia Gardner-Morse at or (802) 223-5738.
