Things that keep me up at night (vol. 7)

Reading is fundamental, the PSA’s used to say, and supposedly our nation’s public education system has been focusing a lot of attention on teaching reading early (e.g., the “No Child Left Behind” law). Something doesn’t seem to be working.

So far I haven’t had situations where a student’s inability to succeed in class was due to an inability to read. I hope the situation facing CUNY doesn’t develop here.
