Students are seen in their classroom at Beecher Hills Elementary School on Friday, Aug. 19, 2022, in Atlanta. Third-graders are at a particularly delicate moment. This is the year when they must master reading or risk school failure. Everything after third grade will require reading comprehension to learn math, social studies and science. Students who don’t read fluently by the end of third grade are more likely to struggle in the future, and even drop out, studies show. (AP Photo/Ron Harris)
