Recognizing that literacy in the new millennium is a collaboration among students, teachers, parents, preservice teachers, college/university partners, and community partners; that literacy is a critically important dimension of the growth of the total community; that every citizen has an investment in the development of literacy and quality education, these Partnerships-in-Literacy are formed.
