Reading First = Kids First

I was asked to write this article for Oregon's Future, which apparently had an editorial approach that did not shun outcasts and rebels. The editor indicated that I had to avoid jargon and present my arguments about Reading First in a way that would be understood by the non-educator.

I figured that the best way would be to provide something of a case-history synopsis of a failure, indicating what he learned and why he picked up various misconceptions. That’s what I tried to do.
