WCER’s Value-Added Research Center will serve as external evaluator for the newly funded Milwaukee Community Literacy Project, which will support 300 struggling readers in kindergarten through 3rd grade in reaching proficiency. It aims to demonstrate an impact on improving student growth in reading for high-need students by expanding investment in community literacy.
