In summer programs for Trenton children over the past four years, TLM has demonstrated the value of computer-based instructional aids, leading to adoption of these aids in all Trenton elementary schools this year. This district-wide demonstration serves TLM’s larger missions of improving literacy education in all NJ urban schools and promoting legislation to mandate after-school remedial programs in all lagging districts.
The TLM goal for the literacy initiative is after-school reading programs throughout the community. TLM is supporting this goal by raising funds to initially establish after-school programs in each elementary school to support increased reading skills.
