“What can we do to help our children read better?”

Jenelle Elder Green: “The television needs to be cut off for a while and provide an opportunity for parents and students to read a book and to take the children to the library.”

Inez Flakes Thomas: “As far as public schools go, bring back phonics. If a child cannot understand what you are reading, it’s going to be hard for them to learn. This is why the desire to read is gone today.”

Emma Deberry: “Parents should read with their children when school is not in session. Children can learn a lot from their parents if they take the time to help them.”

Otis Crockett: “I know it sounds like a cliché, but parents need to get more involved. (We also need to) give more age appropriate material that they find interesting (to read).”

Pastor Andrew Calhoun, Grace Fellowship Church: “Parents and caring adults should join forces to begin reading to children when they are young and continue on through the early years of their lives. Young children need to hear the voices of the “village” in an effort to ensure their success in life.”
