The Trenton Literacy Movement, Inc., was established in 2016 with the goal of identifying and applying educational technologies to improve reading outcomes for children in Trenton, NJ. Our mission is to ensure that all Trenton school children read at grade-level by 3rd grade.
"We believe children first learn to read and then read to learn; you measure what you treasure; and what you measure gets done." -- Edward Bullock, TTLM President
“Because they lack reading skills, Trenton’s youngest students are behind the learning eight ball and many may never catch up. The Trenton Literacy Movement, Inc., seeks to put our youngsters on track to a better and more rewarding life.”
-- Douglas Palmer, TTLM Chairman and former Mayor of Trenton
We work in partnership with schools, parents, the community and funders to:
Our program allows students to work independently at their own pace and in small groups with teacher support to develop fundamental reading skills in a structured, sequential manner. We focus on foundational skills with complex text and academic and domain-specific vocabulary to improve comprehension.
