Called for 20,000 reading tutors; program is succeeding

In my Inaugural Address, I called for 20,000 Ohioans to serve as volunteer reading tutors. Frankly, some thought I was setting the bar too high. I did not. I am pleased to report today we have far surpassed our goal - more than 27,000 Ohioans are making a difference by tutoring a child! In spite of all our progress, we cannot rest! We cannot rest until every child learns how to read in elementary school - until every child graduates from high school prepared for college or for the jobs of today.
