Exploring High and Improving Reading Achievement in Connecticut - The study sponsored by the National Education Goals Panel explores why Connecticut had the highest reading achievement scores on the 1998 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) exam and is the most improved state in reading scores since 1992.
