What are you doing on October 6? How does breaking a world reading record while raising awareness about America’s achievement gap sound?
Join in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® presented in partnership with Pearson Foundation. It’s a national campaign that mobilizes adults and children to close the early education achievement gap by setting a reading world record.
This annual campaign allows Americans to demand that all children receive the quality early education they deserve. On October 6, 2011, more than 2 million voices will call for an end to America’s early education achievement gap by reading Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney – setting a world record in the process!
