when reading this article about literacy

i was saddened by it

not meant to be ironic

that perhaps unknowingly proved the point.

  2. It’s sad, but at least two people are at fault – the writer and her editor. The even more appalling fact is most people who read the article didn’t catch it, read right over it. Keep your head up – you do amazing things with your kindest and I do my darndest with my 8th graders. They’ll find there way and be literate and thinkers and empathetic. Have a wonderful day a great fourth! Peace.
