Bester Elementary Reading Skills


At Bester Elementary School, 70 students in grades one through five exhibited reading skills a full year or more below grade level, according to figures provided by the school late last month.

A total of 117 students with reading skills at least one marking period below grade level were in interventions designed to help them catch up.

In Leslie Hanks' remedial reading group, for instance, young students on a recent day were reciting the sounds of short clusters of letters.

The students were in fourth grade, but were reading at a first-grade level.
