End the School Year with Excellence

Summer is often a time for students to relax and catch-up on reading and read books they might not have time for during the school year. Because of this fact, Achieving Excellence: Inside Georgia Schools, GPB's monthly education news program, is ending out the school year with shows about literacy and literacy programs in Georgia schools.

This month's program is all about the process of learning to read and write. It delves into the topic by asking the question of whether literacy begins in the home or school. The show continues with focusing on the science and developmental stages of reading and writing. It then explores who the main influences are when it comes to a child's literacy development and what resources are in place in Georgia to help with the task.

June's program continues the theme by visiting successful literacy programs in Georgia schools, plus a reminder for students to read all summer.
