PA is a "work first" state. I just made an entry in my LJ last night about this topic. I'm supposed to be part of a panel discussion for Black History Month this Saturday and my topic is education since I work in that field. There are so many things that play into it and sometimes it's just not as simple as, "turn of the TV and read to your kid." Often times it is that simple, but there are an equal number of times when it's not.

One of our students gets up at 3AM to go work at the meat plant and gets home at 5PM, then goes to GED class from 6:00PM to 8:30PM. When is he going to have time to read, especially if his wife is working full-time too?
