'These findings justify alarm"

Indeed they do. From a house editorial today in The Oklahoman:
In its new Kids Count data snapshot, the Annie E. Casey Foundation says 79 percent of low-income Oklahoma fourth-graders aren’t reading proficiently, based on National Assessment of Educational Progress data. The problem isn’t limited to the poor. The foundation reports 57 percent of higher-income Oklahoma fourth-graders also aren’t proficient in reading.
