[Susan notes: As a longtime reading teacher, I'm discouraged that so many people don't 'get' it: Kids learn to read by reading. Period. No interrogation about the reading. Just read.

At the end of the year inspectors came from The State to find out how/why the reading scores on standardized test went up so much.]
