Why Jamal still can't read. .

I shared this article with coworkers of Miami Valley Literacy Council, Dayton Ohio; we were all stunned at the NY State Supreme Court's ruling. What era did these justices come from? My God! I was alarmed and want to follow its effects statewide and nationally. One would think in such a diverse state as New York, this decision, the mindset behind the decision, would not be of the majority. I'd like to hear more from Lynda Jones on this issue.
Overall, we have lost our sense of national outcry. The fact that so many Americans cannot read at an adult level is equivalent to a national disaster!
