Literacy Research Panel

The International Literacy Association (formerly the International Reading Association) formed the Literacy Research Panel (LRP) in 2012 to respond to critical literacy issues facing policymakers, school administrators, teacher educators, classroom teachers, parents, and the general public. Dr. P. David Pearson, PhD, of the University of California at Berkeley was the first LRP chair.
