Bright Start is a fully functional automated reading tutor that will enable vulnerable young children to access personalized and culturally-relevant reading instruction across the Caribbean. The solution aims to increase the number of young children that are reading before the age of 10. The tutor will supplement current reading instruction and provide targeted attention and feedback to children who are underserved due to large class sizes and difficult socioeconomic circumstances.
