AUGUSTA, Ga.---A reading program News 12 has been investigating for over a year is up for discussion tomorrow at the Richmond County school board.
Linda Schrenko, the former Georgia State School Superintendent, first helped Richmond County purchase the Voyager Literacy Program with a $1 million federal grant.
Since Richmond County put it in all elementary schools, spending more than $10 million on it, reading scores have been slipping--in some cases up to half to two-thirds of third graders aren't meeting state standards when it comes to reading.
You're invited to the school board's discussion of Voyager tomorrow at 2 p.m. at the board offices. News 12 will also be there.
