GOOD NEWS! Johnny can be taught to read!
"There is a solution to illiteracy. All children can be taught to read proficiently. That includes the 85 percent of students who are currently being placed in “Special Education” because they have not been taught to read. Every parent who sends their child off to schools in September of each year fully expects that little Johnny or Susie will be reading by the end of the year. Too often that expectation and hope is dashed when frustration and confusion result. That need not be the case."
