Augusta, GA.--- New information tonight about the Voyager reading program in Richmond County and how teachers like it: apparently a majority of those filling out the surveys don't.
The Superintendent just posted a letter to board members about the literacy program and the teacher surveys that went out about it.
Here's the survey:
"The Voyager Universal Literacy Program meets the needs of my students."
YES 81 (45%)
NO 114 (58%)
Total responses: 195
The school board sent anonymous surveys to teachers a few weeks ago about the system-wide reading program for elementary schools.
Since former State School Superintendent Linda Schrenko gave a million dollars for the program, taxpayers have spent more than 10 million dollars on it.
Reading scores have been on a steady decline ever since. The school board takes up the Voyager program again in committee meetings June 12th.
