COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio students will be heading back to the classroom with a new ReadOhio initiative to encourage improved literacy skills.
“Reading is the key that unlocks the door to so many other things and many opportunities in life.” said Gov. Mike DeWine.
On Thursday, DeWine announced a new state-approved curriculum, The Science of Reading, for K-12 schools. It refers to research that has been conducted for decades by scientists and literacy experts that shows there is an actual science behind learning to read and that certain skills need to be taught, including phonics.
