Health Indicator Report of Public Education - Reading Proficiency

[http://newmexicocommoncore.org/pages/view/38/new-ela-standards-k5/ New Mexico Common Core Standards] The end of third grade is a critical milestone for most students because it marks the point at which they must have mastered foundational language and literacy skills necessary to succeed in other subject areas in fourth grade and beyond. Students not reading proficiently by the end of third grade are four times more likely than proficient readers to drop out of high school. High-quality literacy instruction and systematic interventions result in increased academic achievement to ensure children are proficient readers by the end of third grade.
