Haley Barbour on Families & Children

Republican MS Governor


Supports dyslexia screening and early childhood education

To help kids at risk of not succeeding, our schools should screen every first grader for dyslexia and other learning disabilities and get them treatment. Children must first learn to read before they can then read to learn, and that is so much harder if they are saddled with obstacles like dyslexia.

The Legislature has already passed, and I have signed into law, common sense reforms on dyslexia screening. It is past time to put politics aside and fund these programs for our teachers and our children.
