Mobilizing Volunteer Tutors to Improve Student Literacy
Educational Assessment, Evaluation, and Research
This report evaluates the implementation, impacts, and costs of Reading Partners, a school-based early-intervention literacy program that relies on volunteer tutors. The work is a partnership between MDRC and CBCSE. The findings illustrate that the program is an efficient option for schools to consider in providing supplemental reading services to students who are not reading at grade-level.
