According to organizers, part of what makes the program work includes getting trained educators back in the swing of learning.

“We’ve got veteran educators that have done this that know what works, and they will be making sure that the children get what they need,” said Gloria J. Sweet-Love, President of the Tennessee State Conference of the NAACP.

Reading Round-Up days will be held every Tuesday of this month, which are June 14, 21 and 28.
