    Why Is Reading Important to a Learner's Success in School?


    Reading is a fundamental component of life in its entirety. To function adequately in our bustling, technology-driven society, it is important to possess the basic skills of reading. To be successful in school, students need to demonstrate the ability to acclimate to new concepts with a adequate degree of understanding. This skill set is not only required for reading, but for all other subject areas as well.
