Read Right is Cost Effective When Measured by Cost Per Grade Level Gained
Serving the same student year after year is expensive
- Read Right works to quickly eliminate reading problems
School dropouts are expensive
- Read Right eliminates a major barrier to academic success
Losing Human Potential is expensive
- Eliminating a reading problem gives the student ready access to information, ideas, and inspiration through print.
Many schools want to bring Read Right to their students, but where will they get the funding? Read Right’s extreme flexibility in dealing with various populations of students makes creative financing possible. Funds can be drawn from several different budgets and combined to invest in Read Right.
