"Today we're featuring two mothers in the Tredyffrin/Easttown district in Pennsylvania who have started a local group, Everyone Reads, that has been urging their district to overhaul its literacy program. Whether you're inspired by their work— or view them as the "crazy moms" with an axe to grind — Education Week thought readers would find it enlightening to hear about their journey from worrying about their own kids' reading to advocating for a broad-based look at district literacy.

"When you’re talking about curriculum choice and teachers choosing the curriculum, that process … the biggest recommendation was to immerse the teachers in the science of reading. ... But in our district, we have ability to serve all kids, even kids in reading support right now who would not be in reading support if our teachers were using that methodology and understood it. And we have the ability to do that."
