Early Childhood Coordinator Jacki Wimmer reads to pre-K students on Tuesday, May 7, 2013, at Iaeger Elementary School in Iaeger, W.Va. Wimmer works in a program that provides a bag of books to families to encourage reading at home. Wimmer says some students never see a book until kindergarten. The school is located in McDowell County, an area overwhelmed with poverty, unemployment, drug abuse, and teacher shortages. McDowell County on Wednesday was expected to win approval to expand its role to include social services in a county that faces deep economic challenges. The project, called Reconnecting McDowell, brings together medical professionals, telecommunications firms and a teachers' union. (AP Photo/Randy Snyder)
