My associate and I made a visit to the capital last week where we expressed our concerns about the poor skills of our upcoming seniors in reading. Very bright students have not learned the fundamental of phonics and are so far behind all due to the common core.
The assistant to the Director of Education brushed off our concerns. She was rude and dismissive by counting down the minutes we had left in our meeting. If that is the leadership in our state, no wonder we are failing.
Parents, listen to your child read. Do they stumble over longer words, have trouble taking tests, poor spelling and hate to read? These are all indicators of reading issues that can be quickly and easily fixed. Call us! 515-225-8513
