Together, we’re improving 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 is a plan to change that.

STAND’S TOP PRIORITIES

COMMUNITY Engagement

Stand for Children Oregon partners with schools across Oregon to provide direct support to teachers, parents and students. We connect educators and provide support to ensure Oregon’s education policies make their intended impact in the classroom.

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.

Electoral Work

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.

oUR IMPACT

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!
