The Education Commission of the States (ECS) reports that at least 89 bills have been introduced in states this legislative session that address reading instruction, intervention in the third grade or literacy in general as state leaders are asking educator candidates and current educators to complete training in the science of reading.

See its updated 50-State Comparison on K-3 Policies for a state-by-state breakdown on prevention and intervention strategies related to literacy, including a list of states with requirements for literacy curricula and for educator training.

For a list of bills introduced this session, refer to and bookmark the ECS State Education Policy Watchlist.
