WWC IRCEVL06 Voices Literature and Character Education (Voices LACE)
Voices Literature and Character Education Program (Voices LACE; formerly known as Voices of Love and Freedom and Literacy and Values) is a K–12 program that aims to promote positive character and citizenship values, literacy skills, and social skills. The program contains a curriculum that can be used over any length of time. During classroom lessons, students read books about such everyday issues as ethnic discrimination, fighting, and bullying, and elaborate on central themes through role-playing and discussions practiced in school and at home. Emphasis is given to promoting caring relationships between teachers and students and among students and to connecting the values taught through students’ personal stories. Voices LACE may also be implemented as a schoolwide improvement program. Optional components of the program include schoolwide events and restructuring of school organization and practices (establishing student assemblies and creating small learning communities), parental involvement (home visits and family nights), and community support (joint campaigns with supporting organizations and business).

NCES 98464 NAEP FACTS: Long-Term Trends in Student Reading Performance
Data from the NAEP 1996 Long-Term Reading Assessment show that overall student reading performance, as tested at age levels 9, 13, and 17, had increased for both 9- and 13-year-olds since the first assessment in 1971. Scores for 9- and 13-year-olds in most racial/ethnic and gender sub-groups reflected the overall increase. Black 17-year-olds were the only members of that age group to achieve an increase, and they did so while black dropout rates were declining.
