    Reading: The Foundation of a Good Education
    “The more you focus on reading, the more you learn to love to read and the more you can do,” Secretary Duncan told a group of middle school students Monday afternoon at McManus Middle School in Linden, New Jersey. The Secretary stopped by McManus to join the Mark Emmert, president of the NCAA, and Mike Krzyzewski, head coach of Duke men’s basketball and USA Basketball Men’s National Team, in celebrating the school’s participation in the Ticket to Reading Rewards (TTRR) program.

    Duncan often explains that reading is the foundation of a good education, which is one reason he co-founded the TTRR in 2002 when he was superintendent of Chicago Public Schools. The program, which is run by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Foundation, encourages students to read books outside the classroom and provides rewards for reading. The program’s three components are reading rewards, tickets for students to local college basketball games, and guidance for middle school coaches to act as mentors in the reading program.

    The students at McManus and Joseph E Soehl Middle School—Linden Public School District’s second middle school—read an additional 4,000 books under the TTRR program this year. The TTRR program operates in more than 150 schools nationwide and more than a million students have participated in the program since it began in 2002.
