Hi, I’m Rich Taylor, your state senator.
If a student can’t read, they can’t do their best in school.
That’s why we should do all we can to help kids learn to read by third grade.
That means extra help for boys and girls struggling to read their first book on their own.
It means smaller class sizes for Kindergarten through third grade so students get more one-on-one time with their teachers.
It means reading specialists who try different approaches until they find the one that will help a particular child become a successful reader.
When we invest in helping our youngest students learn to read, we set the stage for future success down the road.
That’s why I’m fighting this year to protect state dollars dedicated to keeping class sizes small for our youngest students. And why I’m working to expand state help so schools can do more to help every student learn to read.
I’m your State Senator, Rich Taylor
