And I have known adults that could not read...but I never knew why.
There was one guy I worked with that could not read...and over time I showed him how to turn the letters into sounds...and to my surprise he started reading...with hesitation but he was able to read for the first time...I guess he was one of those kids and they just gave up on him when he did not get it then....I guess the system just does not have the patience it needs to teach all.
Obviously what they need is more teachers...and teachers that understand what you understand and know effective techniques that work....but we have to change the whole firkin system to get that...politics and all.
Oh for an enlightened leadership!...we have the people to do the work.
