Mich. To Coordinate Donations To Support Reading

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Education officials in Michigan are planning an effort to coordinate private donations to help build a culture of reading in the state.

The announcement comes from state Superintendent Mike Flanagan. He is embarking on an effort to coordinate a single system for individuals; businesses; and groups, clubs and civic organizations to contribute any amount for providing children's books to young readers in low-income homes.

Flanagan said in a statement that: "Building a reading culture in every corner of this state will build a stronger Michigan for generations."

Flanagan said the effort will help Michigan attain a goal of having all children proficient in reading by the end of the third grade.
