A new Iowa Reading Research Center initiative will provide expert training in literacy instruction, need-based improvement planning, and continuous support to four local education agencies in order to bring improved literacy outcomes for students facing multiple challenges. The innovative Practitioners and Researchers Overcoming Problems of Literacy (PROPeL) initiative is made possible by funding from the University of Iowa Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost and the University of Iowa College of Education, which is the home institution of the Iowa Reading Research Center. Learn more about PROPeL and its inaugural focus on alternative schools and juvenile justice facilities in this story from the Iowa Reading Research Center.
