No, not happy. America's elite Education Establishment dug in like a pack of ferrets in heat. They denounced Flesch. They went on doing all the things he said were killing kids. Results: 50,000,000 functional illiterates and counting.
This story weighs heavily in my calculations that these so-called educators are not all that interested in education. Social engineering? Yeah, definitely.
"Why Johnny Can't Read" turns 55 this month. Forever young. Here's a great piece: "Rudolph Flesch Rules the World of Reading." Spread the word.
PS: I just put a video on YouTube, same exact title, same message, just 4 minutes, and you know.
