1. I wonder why a public library would filter a computer station meant for adults to use so that they could not access social networks?
2. I wonder why a teacher would not be permitted to read aloud more than 5 minutes?
3. I wonder why the term read aloud now seems to mean read and interrogate or read and build vocabulary or read and take a quiz?
4. I wonder why a child is told to "pick a real book" when he eagerly brings a GN up to his parent at a bookstore (thanks, Mr. Schu for mentioning that)?
5. I wonder why we do not allow kids choice of reading material in the face of stats like this?
6. I wonder why we do not believe librarians are important in light of this data?
7. I wonder why an administrator would deem kids "not doing anything" if they were listening to a read aloud?
8. I wonder why the NYT gets its data about the number of YA books published annually?
9. I wonder why a teacher thinks she is honoring students' self-selected reading when she allows them one time each month to talk about their reading?
10. I wonder why we cannot simply clone those educators (teachers and librarians and coaches and administrators and others) who care about kids and books and share their passion with others?
