“By developing early literacy skills, students begin kindergarten ready to read. Access to instructional materials that teach letter recognition, phonics, and vocabulary, should be available in every home. To accomplish this goal, we are pleased to announce the launch of Footsteps2Brilliance so every child can enter school already on track to graduate.”
