Earlier this month, Common Sense Media released Children, Teens, and Reading, a research review on reading rates and reading achievement of children and teens in the United States. Using data from national surveys and databases on children’s reading habits and reading scores, it looks at trends over time and differences between demographic groups. It includes information on e-reading. For the full report, click here.

Key findings include:

  • Reading rates have dropped dramatically among teens.
  • A significant reading achievement gap persists between white, black and Hispanic children.
  • A gender gap exists in reading time and achievement.
