There is a large income gap in the reading proficiency of Virginia's fourth-graders, a report released Tuesday said.
Mr. Speaker, Mr. President, Justices of the Supreme Court, members of the General Assembly, and my fellow Virginians:
The campaign of former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine delivered 30,866 petition signatures to the State Board of Elections on Monday ahead of a Thursday deadline to qualify for state's 2012 U.S. Senate race.
"Highlighting the gaps in reading proficiency between our higher income and lower income students is necessary to track our progress," Holton said in a statement.
Virginia Secretary of Education Anne Holton told the Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1b4jQO0 ) that education officials must focus their attention on making sure the gains achieved by higher income students are shared across all income groups.
