Watch: Mark Zuckerberg gives $30 million to aimed to raise literacy

Mark Zuckerberg has gotten behind personalized learning technology that adapts to a child’s interests and capabilities.

Struggling in early reading can lead to major setbacks, so the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is hoping to target that critical period. Though there’s no guarantee of success and critics are skeptical of personalized learning, Zuckerberg and co. are thrilled to see the results.
