Abstract: Ten years ago, six teachers established a program of literacy intervention and professional learning in remote northwestern Australia based on the Reading Recovery principles. This group of teachers was determined to learn what had to happen in order for them to make a difference with students and then to make it happen. Their work led to getting all the necessary players around the partnership table at the same time: all education sectors — local, regional, and national — noneducation government entities, business, parents, and other community partners.
