New York City has selected 49 of its lowest-performing middle schools to receive extra funding for training educators on how to teach literacy. For instance, the Urban Institute of Mathematics in the Bronx has created an extra English class to teach reading and has teachers across all subjects teach literacy. "We're now working to move kids that are reading at a second grade level up to an eighth grade level in three years, in what they couldn't do in five or six years," principal Jennifer Joynt said.
