Some higher education officials joined with Ardmore employment experts for a lesson in improving literacy tonight.

A representative from OU's College of Continuing Education presented data collected about Ardmore schools showing that 46 percent of Ardmore 1st through 3rd graders needed reading remediation compared to the state average of 34 percent.

The group also talked about early literacy intervention, testing and ways to improve literacy throughout the district.
