In a study involving a sustained silent reading program, the “students gained an average of 3.9 year levels on their reading achievement test scores during the one year program.” (Cullinan, 2000)
“Readers are better at mathematics and science.”
(OECD PISA Study, School Libraries and Student Achievement in Ontario, 2007)
90 percent of employers rated “reading comprehension” as “very important” for workers.
Statistics show that those who score higher on reading tests tend to earn higher incomes.
