Eleven percent of kindergarteners not ready for reading lessons in the classroom
About one-of-every-10 kindergarteners in Wisconsin are not ready for reading lessons in the classroom. That's according to the results of the Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening test that was given for the first time last fall. The test is part of a series of education measures passed in the last session of the Legislature. According to the Wisconsin State Journal, 89-percent of kindergarteners met early literacy standards like recognizing letters and sounds.
