As new learning standards put more emphasis on getting students to be able to read and analyze non-fiction text, a new report suggests that classrooms have a long way to go.

Report: Students read mostly fiction, below their grade level

The report was compiled from anonymized and aggregated data on nearly 10 million U.S. students in first through 12th grades.”
