This is just a snapshot of the important results of the New York Life Revitalizing High School Libraries Initiative (RHSL). According to the 2004 position statement of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Commission on Reading, to reach high levels of literacy adolescent readers require: "Sustained experiences with diverse texts in a variety of genres and offering multiple perspectives on real life experiences. Although many of these texts will be required by the curriculum, others should be self-selected and of high interest to the reader." Teachers of adolescents, the Commission goes on to say, require "Adequate and appropriate reading materials that tap students' diverse interests and represent a range of difficulty." New York Life Foundation understood this fully in 2003 when it funded RHSL through Public Education Network (PEN), a network of 89 local education funds (LEFs) across the country.
