Class of 2025: Third Grade | OPB | The importance of learning to read
Class of 2025: Third Grade is an ongoing reporting project focusing on a group of 27 students at Earl Boyles Elementary school in Portland. These students, currently (at the time of the production) in the third grade, are part of Oregon’s goal to graduate 100% of students in the class of 2025.
Watch the stories of students OPB has been following since kindergarten, and find out what happens as they grow up, who helps them overcome barriers and why some are on track to graduate while others are not.
OPB's long running “Class of 2025″ is a multimedia reporting series, which began in 2012 after the state of Oregon set a goal that every student would complete high school starting in 2025. This 12 year long project follows the same students from Kindergarten through Senior Year.
