Mayor touts city’s focus on literacy after reading to first-graders in Ozone Park


In the latest chapter of his “City Hall in Your Borough” program, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Meisha Ross Porter visited a first-grade class at P.S. 377 in Ozone Park on Tuesday, Sept. 21, to accentuate his administration’s commitment to literacy.

The school has a “literacy coach,” one of 425 in elementary schools across the city, who work with the teachers to raise the reading comprehension among school kids.
