Four literacy experts investigate the reasons in this book - and demonstrate why schools need to go beyond K - 3 literacy to help adolescents reach their full potential. Following a group of children from low-income families from preschool through high school, the authors charted the students' outcomes using test data reflecting language and literacy skills; self-report data reflecting motivation and engagement in school; and interviews with students, teachers, and parents. Through the sobering discoveries made during this study, educators, administrators, researchers, and reading specialists will discover the critical influence of both protective factors and risk factors."--BOOK JACKET." ;
