  •  The education problem (3+ / 0-)

    If you look at the forty-odd diaries I've put out on DKos since I started doing it a year ago, most of them have centered around books and have in fact been book reviews.  The coming generations will very likely have to do reading, as necessary to find out what must be done to bring about a future, as neither corporate TV nor corporate radio nor corporate movies will clue them in.  Yet our schools present reading as an unsavory obligation, in their rush to "demonstrate skills" so as to improve test scores and make AYP goals.  We need to see this as bad news.
