Mobilizing Volunteer Tutors to Improve Student Literacy
Independent, gold-standard research finalized in 2015 by MDRC demonstrated, through a randomized control trial, that Reading Partners has a positive and statistically significant impact on reading comprehension, sight-word reading, and reading fluency. The study also found our program is effective for a wide variety of students and that for every dollar invested in Reading Partners, our program model delivers more than two dollars in literacy resources to students.
