Read by 4th has partnered with BeHeardPhilly to launch a survey about views on how children become successful readers and learners. This survey, which is for all Philadelphians, not just parents, takes less than five minutes to complete. Anyone completing the survey is eligible to win a $20 gift card from a raffle. The link is Read by 4th Survey, and it is open until March 19.

Read by 4th is a citywide coalition whose goal is to get all schoolchildren reading on grade level by 4th grade. Studies show that students who reach this benchmark are much more likely to be successful in school, go on to college, and have better life outcomes.
