Learn more about Philadelphia's Read by 4th Grade initiative. There is a role for everyone, not just parents of small children. We are families, educators, literacy specialists, youth program providers, neighborhood merchants, faith leaders, block captains, and much more.

    About - Read by 4th
    Read by 4th is a citywide campaign bringing together an ever growing coalition of partners to double the number of children reading at grade level by the start of 4th grade. At the end of the 2017 school year, almost two thirds of children in Philadelphia entered the 4th grade unable to read at grade level.
