b) Provide a literacy mentor, through collaboration with the business and non-profit sectors, to every student in grades one and two who is struggling to read, so that every child may graduate with adequate literacy and numeracy skills through the leadership of the Elementary Literacy/Litteratie au primaire;

c) Introduce an Early Learning and Child Care Act;
