According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress reading assessment, two-thirds of all fourth-graders fail to read at a proficient level. And research has shown that those students are four times more likely not to graduate from high school on time. Helping students who have fallen behind is one of the greatest challenges teachers face. Technology can help by providing personalized paths and support for students and by giving teachers powerful data and tools that free them up and help them differentiate instruction. The schools that can effectively support students in the early years are going to see achievement improve for more students in the long run.
