KC-AERC in the Press: KCPTV Profiles Literacy Efforts

KC-AERC’s Partnership with Turn the Page Kansas City Featured on The Local Show

On July 25, 2013, KCPTV’s The Local Show aired a piece on the summer reading component of Mayor Sly James’ Turn the Page initiative, which aims to improve early literacy rates among children in Kansas City, Missouri schools. Turn the Page Kansas City is partnering with 13 summer reading programs to combat learning loss that occurs during summer break. The Mayor’s Office has contracted with KC-AERC for evaluation services to help determine the impact of these programs on student performance.
