Byron Pitts, Please Jump Into Reading Wars ASAP!!!!!!!!

Written By onci on Tuesday, December 1, 2009 | 4:38 PM

CBS reporter Byron Pitts was just interviewed about his new book “Step Out On Nothing.” (See five-minute video on YouTube titled “Overcoming Illiteracy.”)


Pitts says he was 12-years-old and “functionally illiterate.” Tests concluded he was a “picture reader.” All the educational nonsense of the past 70 years is right here in this one little episode.


Here’s my take: nobody knows the idiocy of the public schools any better than Byron Pitts. He was a front-line victim of a completely idiotic way to teach reading called Look-Say, Sight Words, Dolch Words, Whole Word--all of it wholly worthless.


I call on Byron Pitts to lead a campaign against the Education Establishment to make it stop doing to young children of today what happened to him 25 years ago.


Byron, to get your bearings, please see “42: Reading Resources” on Improve-Education.org.


The only reason the Education Establishment can get away with all their shenanigans is that the top people--in business, media, and academia--stand silently by. Am I the only one who finds this disgusting? It's time to make some noise.
