As Teachers Protest, Only 7% of Detroit Public School Children Are Reading Proficient
[link to cnsnews.com]

(CNSNews.com) - In the public schools in Detroit, Mich., according to the U.S. Department of Education, only 7 percent of the eighth graders are grade-level proficient or better in reading.

Some public school teachers in the City of Detroit and around the state of Michigan are reportedly taking a vacation or a sick day today to protest right-to-work legislation likely to be approved by the state legislature. Under current law, Michigan public school teachers must pay dues to the teachers’ union. If the right-to-work law is enacted, Michigan public-school teachers will be free to join the union and pay dues to it if they wish, but they will also be free not to join the union and not to pay it dues.

Oh it's not really a surprise, but it is relevant. If I only sent in 7% of work to my boss, and then spent the day demanding not to be punished, I'd probably be fired pretty quickly.

Sounds about right. I've worked with too many high school students who can't do what was required of me in 3rd grade.

Seems the modern set of Parents or excuse me, now mostly Single Parent, is not bothering to read to their little tykes from the time they are born until they are six years old.. Easier to just have the camped out in front of the HDTV hoping it will teach them how to read.

Of course Parents have been almost pushed aside in favor of the Village and its collective Idiots.
