Event: Jumpstart’s Read for the Record Oct. 6

What are you doing on October 6?  Will you have time to break a world reading record, while raising awareness about America’s achievement gap?

Join in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record presented in partnership with Pearson Foundation. It’s a national campaign that mobilizes adults and children to close the early education achievement gap by setting a reading world record.

This annual campaign allows Americans to demand that all children receive the quality early education they deserve. On October 6, 2011, more than 2 million voices will call for an end to America’s early education achievement gap by reading Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney – setting a world record in the process!

Get involved at www.readfortherecord.org to help Jumpstart close the early education achievement gap:

1. Pledge to Read: Submit your official pledge and help Jumpstart reach more than 2.1 million children.

2. Spread the Word: Use simple tools to educate your friends and family about America’s early education achievement gap and invite them to read.
