Reading Partners needs more community tutors in the 2018-19 school year. There are nearly nine million low-income K-5 students in the United States, including thousands in Baltimore, who are not yet reading at grade level. Without developing the literacy skills needed to read at grade level, these children do not have an equitable chance to succeed in school or in life.
