Ben Cannon wrote in a Portland Monthly article stating that by improving third grade reading scores, the state would also be improving graduation and incarceration rates.

Even so, he said, the third-grade benchmark is an important one. Students reading at grade level in the third grade are more likely to graduate from high school. Students graduating from high school are less likely to wind up in the corrections system, he said.

Because of his findings, the Masonic Lodge of Brodhead is encouraging students be present at school by offering a free bike to one boy and one girl in 3rd grade with perfect attendance.  Pictured below is Roger Bray, lodge member, JD Bussell, principal at MVES and James Cromer, Master of Brodhead Lodge No 566.
