FreeReading.net is a free, sequential, research-based reading  
intervention program designed for students in kindergarten through  
first grade.

Tired of investing in expensive textbooks and proprietary software  
programs, Florida education officials are looking to an open online- 
learning platform to teach young students basic reading skills.

Advocates of the program say the idea that a public, collaborative,  
continuously modified online curriculum can be used in the classroom  
is gaining momentum in schools.
