From the pioneering days when American settlers educated their children at home using whatever resources they had, to today’s technologically advanced online learning platforms, there’s a rich tapestry of evolution and change.

Education is not just about learning from textbooks. It’s about shaping your journey, discovering your passions, and paving the pathway to your future.

In the United States, only an average of about 79% of adults read well enough to be considered “literate.” Literacy being simply “the ability to read and write” doesn’t mean that 79% of adults can read and write proficiently; it only means that they can recognize words by sight and assemble letters to make words. The levels of literacy necessary to be successful, however, are far higher than that minimal definition. In fact, a student’s reading comprehension directly corresponds as a predictor of both college and career success. That means that if you want your student to be successful, it’s time to convince them about the magical benefits of reading on their success.
