Nationwide Rates of Reading Proficiency Are Low

Due to distanced learning and COVID-19 related stressors, reading scores are down across the nation. Educational research shows that 33% of fourth graders scored at or above a proficient level of reading in 2022. That statistic is 31% for eight graders (National Center or Education Statistics or NCES). In 2019, that statistic was 37% for twelfth graders, and may be lower today (NCES).

Strong reading skills are crucial for success in school. Every school subject requires the use of written language. Moreover, subjects in the humanities heavily rely on reading and writing. If your student is falling behind, it may be time to consider hiring a tutor.
