Students in Tennessee to join in reading project

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Students in Tennessee will join millions of their peers across the country to celebrate the ninth annual National Education Association's Read Across America Day on Wednesday.

The NEA said in a news release that the goal is to show youngsters the joy of reading and build a nation of readers.

The association said it expects more than 45 million readers across the country to participate.

The NEA's Tennessee affiliate, the Tennessee Education Association, says it represents 52,000 elementary and secondary teachers, school administrators, education support professionals, higher education faculty and students preparing to become teachers.
