‘Read to Succeed’ program helps Lansing area weak students
The Capital Area Literacy Coalition's "Read to Succeed" program, which helps Lansing area students in developing literacy skills after the school day ends, is celebrating 30 years of its sincere efforts.
The program recruits MSU students and provides them with professional training to help develop struggling students' literacy skills for a semester. College students can join the program for a class credit, and the program is totally free of cost for the students being tutored.
Lois Bader, who started the program in 1985, said Lansing's public elementary school students score very low in reading comprehension, which puts them behind not only in reading but also in all other subjects.
Speaking on the topic, Bader said, "Because of the reading problem in Lansing schools, we're at the bottom of the state. With math, if you can't read the story problems, then you're only going to go so far. This is extremely serious."
Illiteracy has long been a big issue in Lansing. According to the Capital Area Literacy Coalition's official website, the problem of illiteracy has become a near epidemic at different levels of schooling.
The after-school one-on-one tutoring under the Read to Succeed program enables weak students get direct attention that help them progress faster than they would in an ordinary classroom.
