Nice job Dave. It is amazing how those who claim to "support" education want to leave out the teacher.

If you look at the problem with literacy, it is a classic case of corruption and misdirection.

Did you know that all of the thousands of curriculum packages sold by the big textbook companies have little value? A recent study of the effectiveness, showed only ONE program that worked to improve a child's reading and that was READING RECOVERY because it involves direct instruction by a teacher.

Yet, school administrators keep complaining about how expensive it is to have a teacher help a struggling student and waste millions of dollars a year looking for a "silver bullet" that will not require a teacher only to fail with taxpayer money again and again.

Education needs to be accountable to their community.

We have a worker shortage with 3 million available jobs but education is not interested in creating new curriculum to fill these jobs. Businesses would love to fund real education that can fill these jobs but for over 10 years nothing has changed.

There is no such thing as a child who cannot learn, but there are too many adults who do not care about kids making decisions that affect their futures and this has to change.
