Reading Reform Foundation of New York and Manhattanville College announce a new partnership in the establishment of the Rose Institute for Learning and Literacy.
This collaboration between Reading Reform Foundation of New York and Manhattanville is a ground-breaking one because it will be offering training to teachers in the teaching of reading, writing, spelling and comprehension that only 18% of the teacher-education programs in the United States offer, according to a study done in 2006 and now updated in 2013 by the National Council on Teacher Quality.
Reading Reform Foundation of New York, a 34 year-old not-for-profit organization, was founded by a group of teachers to improve the teaching of reading, writing, spelling and comprehension. The Founders were convinced by their own experience that all children could learn to read if they were taught properly.

Teaching Reading, One Teacher & Thirty Children at a Time
"I can state with conviction that this program has assisted our lower grade children to excel in their reading tasks. Our classroom teachers rave about the merits of the program when I visit their classrooms. The evidence has been in the growth of the children as they transition from the lower to the upper grades. I strongly recommend the Reading Reform program to every principal. They will see immediate results."
We give courses all year round on our approach. They are open to both certified teachers as well as parents and administrators.
