Watch this space

Karin Perry and I are spending the week doing a Literature Academy in Conroe ISD. Day 1 was today. Between the day and the heat this afternoon, I hesitate to post anything for fear it might be incoherent. But please go to the New York Times and read the op-Ed today about "balanced literacy." Readers of this blog know I have discussed this false war recently. Now the NY Times is involved again with an op-Ed dissing independent reading and calling for a return to the CCSS continued roll out.

Call me paranoid, but the NYT has a long history of this use of an op-Ed to move agendas forward. I think this is another example.

I will be posting more about this piece later this week. In the meantime, watch this space.
