For various reasons, I have been slacking lately, but today, thanks to the Carnival of Education at The Education Wonks, I ran across a most excellent post on the role of parents in their children's literacy. No groundbreaking new research; nothing like that. The writer, Brett, expresses so clearly what I and many others have always felt. Children, from a very young age, must be surrounded by books, and read to from those books. Income is no barrier; public libraries abound. Parents who do not do this are not doing their job, and are risking their child's future.
