You cannot believe in civil rights, you cannot believe in justice, if you do not believe in teaching children to read.
— Robert C. Carroll, Assemblymember NY-44

Our Campaign

The National Parents Union Right to Read Campaign is an urgent response to our nation’s literacy crisis. From parent polling on literacy, to publishing a thoughtful policy paper that highlights the need for the universal adoption of evidence-based methods to ensure every child receives effective literacy instruction, and grassroots organizing, the National Parents Union is hard at work to raise awareness to call on educators, parents, and policymakers to join a national effort to drive change.
