Ready To Learn Partner Breakfast

group sitting at a square table set. A breakfast meeting to say “thank you”!

With millions of children lacking the basic early math and literacy skills to succeed in school, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and PBS have joined forces through the Ready To Learn Initiative, a project funded by the U.S. Department of Education and Congress, to address this critical school readiness issue, particularly in low-income communities. The RTL Initiative uses multiplatform media and other learning tools – including television programs, interactive games, mobile apps, as well as hands-on activities – to engage and strengthen early learning experiences for children ages 2-8 at home, in preschool, and in other out of school settings.

WFSU Public Media relies on its many partners to help make our local initiative around Ready To Learn a success and works with these partners to facilitate projects that increase awareness of PBS Ready To Learn transmedia content, as well as the importance of parents' roles as a child's first teachers.

This breakfast will serve as an update and thank-you to those who help achieve the Ready To Learn mission in our communities.
