School Chancellor, Carmen Fariña believes this effort from the City Education Department will, “ensure that we have every parent in New York City and every teacher reading every single day to their children.” Not only will the children be able to get these books in school, but the lists will help parents and students alike to select new books to read regularly.
The City Education Department intends to spend $540,000 for NYC Reads 365, with most of the cost going towards the purchase of new reading material. With only 30% of 3rd graders currently passing the NY state reading tests, this new reading initiative will be a step in the direction for major improvement.
