State efforts to boost literacy rates must be aimed at improving classroom instruction if they are to be effective, a report by the National Association of State Boards of Education says.

A policy brief by the Alexandria, Va.-based organization encourages state leaders to develop state-wide literacy plans centered on improving instruction, while allowing districts some flexibility in implementing them. It lists recommendations for improvements at the state, district, school, and classroom levels.

“From State Policy to Classroom Practice: Improving Literacy Instruction for All Students” is posted by the National Association of State Boards of Education.
