Partnering with NYC Public Schools to Ensure Every Child Learns to Read

Two in three Black and Latinx students in NYC public schools cannot read proficiently. Last month, Mayor Adams and NYC Public Schools Chancellor Banks announced NYC Reads, a $100M initiative to ensure all 365,000 K-5 students in NYC learn to read using evidence-backed curricula taught by well trained and supported teachers and coupled with effective uses of technology. Robin Hood’s sustained investments in literacy and the targeted funding of our Learning + Technology Fund seeded critical school demonstrations and research that helped shape and propel this initiative. Now, NYC’s 32 school districts are on the precipice of adopting and implementing new literacy curricula; a bold move that may prove to be one of the most consequential changes in the city’s public education system in decades. Learn about the Robin Hood Learning + Technology Fund.
