600 volunteers needed for central Arkansas reading program
By Greg Rayburn
At least 600 community volunteers are being sought this week by the AR Kids Read organization, a collaborative group that is combating low reading skills among elementary students in the three Pulaski County school districts.
Almost 40 percent of fourth-grade students in the Little Rock, North Little Rock and Pulaski County districts read below grade level, threatening their lifelong success. AR Kids Read says the solution includes volunteers reading with students one hour a week for one semester (12 weeks).
