“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”~ Frederick Douglass

But only 1/3 of our nation’s children read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade. Together, we can change that.

What is the Cox Campus?

The Cox Campus offers free, video-based courses and resources for early childhood educators, families, leaders, and community members.

These courses are based on proven language and literacy practices that can immediately be used to make a difference in the lives of children.

And thanks to generous partner investments, everyone has access to this training at no cost, ever!

Science has spoken.Readers are born on the laps of responsive adults.

From birth, young children need strong relationships with adults who engage them in conversation and celebrate their use of language.

More conversations lead to stronger brain connections, closer relationships, and a solid foundation for language development and all learning, including reading.

An eye on the future.Why 3rd Grade Reading Matters.

Third grade marks an important point in a child’s life – the transition from learning to read to reading to learn!

Reading proficiently by the end of 3rd grade can determine a child’s future: graduating from high school, going to college, and enjoying a lifetime of healthy and productive outcomes.

What we believe for children.
