FARGO — Two-thirds of North Dakota’s children aren’t proficient readers by the time they reach fourth grade, and the results are worse for the state’s low-income students, with nearly four out of five not hitting proficient reading marks, according to an Annie E. Casey Foundation KIDS COUNT report released Tuesday.

Research shows that reading proficiently early on is one key to a better life, said Karen Olson, program director for North Dakota KIDS COUNT.
