This Day in Dayton, 7 September

Fall 1993. First grader Grant Smith from Dayton Elementary is pictured in the photo accompanying an article on a new program called Reading Recovery that helps children learn to be independent readers. The program was based in the School of Education at Purdue. Dayton was one of four local elementary schools that would benefit from the program (Purdue University Perspective Newsletter. “New Program Boosts Nonreaders”)
