Did you know?

A typical child from a literate family enters first grade with approximately 1,000 hours of being read to by an adult whereas a child from a low-literate family averages just 25 hours.

Approximately 25% of AACLC adult student’s children are under 5 years of age. So our work teaching adults to read has a ripple effect that can impact the lives of the next generation too.
