Illiterate Nation


In our quest to leave no child behind we are graduating a bunch of illiterates.

Credit recovery, component retesting, and summer school are just not picking up the kids who cannot read or write.

NCLB is leaving more behind than ever and the race to the top is just going to help this number grow even higher and faster.

We've got to do something and we've got to do it now. If not, all will be lost forever.

I was going to leave a rant here about this issue...but a couple of weeks ago, I took your advice about getting my own blog so I wrote it up there.
