    1. As a certified elementary teacher who taught 6th grade science for 10 years, I was very disappointed in this book The author makes a lot of presumptions about what he THINKS is going on in America s classrooms today I m curious to know when was the last time he was inside a classroom school and observed what is going on He makes a lot of blanket statements about teachers that I do not think are true maybe 20 or 30 years ago, yes, but not today at least in my experience I was also a little person [...]

    2. I felt this author made insightful observations, a teaching generation too late His ideas have been implemented in school districts since the 1990s and children still have problems learning how to read It was a neat story of how he came to recognize the problem with reading instruction, but we all know the DICK AND JANE method of reading was not effective This is not new And, the concept of blending phonics with whole language has been tried already The ideas were not new to me.

    3. Very thought provoking, and it touches a variety of themes with the education and thinking background topic It made me want to read , and read well From it I went to one of my favorite books, How to Read a Book Excellent.
