Together, we can improve Early Literacy
Children who are not on grade level for reading by the end of third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school. Yet, before the pandemic, less than half of Oregon students were reading proficiently by third grade. The Early Literacy Success Initiative has a plan to change that.
STAND’S TOP PRIORITIES
Stand for Children Oregon partners with schools across Oregon to provide direct support to teachers, parents and students. We offer parents the opportunity to get engaged within their student’s high school community to keep their students on track.
Policy & Advocacy
Our work at Stand for Children is thanks entirely to the support of passionate teachers, parents, community members and education advocates who fight passionately for better outcomes for our students.
We fight for leaders who fight for our students. We advocate for great representation on our local school boards and in Salem. And we educate voters on the candidates who have the best track records for education, and who keep children at the center of their policy priorities.
Stand for Children is changing the odds for Oregon high school students thanks to your support. We wrote and passed Measure 98 to address Oregon’s historically low graduation rates. Since its passing, graduation rates have increased by 6 percentage points!
