Losing Literacy

Until WWII, American children learned to read by utilizing phonics. Words were not learned by memorization but rather, children learned that each letter had a corresponding sound.

It was this method that allowed Benjamin Franklin to be a proficient reader before ever stepping foot into a classroom.

What Current Affairs Reveal About Education

It’s as if current events are working together to reform education, or, at the very least, to make it evident to all Americans why reform needs to happen.

The U.S. Education System: What Went Wrong? Part III

A great thing about being American is that if you are unhappy with how things are run in one state, you are free to move to 49 others.  The same goes for businesses. If you are unsatisfied with one company, you can take your money to another establishment.
