Every day at TKG Environmental Services Group, LLC we look to “Improve Your Environment.” This month, TKG’s commitment to improving the environment extends to within our local schools. As children across Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin are heading back to school, TKG is proud to support United Way of Lake County’s Reading Success Program which partners volunteer reading tutors with at-risk children.
The Importance of Reading Proficiency
One in six children who are not reading proficiently in third grade does not graduate from high school on time, a rate four times greater than that of proficient readers. First graders who receive Reading Success tutoring have reading improvement rates almost 300% higher than the children in their class without tutors. Early intervention programs like these create lasting change by focusing on lasting solutions, not short-term charity, and help strengthen the economy and local communities.
