Why kids never learn to read--you need to know this

 I've written 30 or 40 articles about the reading wars. I always think I've explained the subject clearly, just as Rudolf Flesch thought he had explained the subject once and for all in1955 (pub. date of Why Johnny Can't Read). But nothing gets better. 

Here's why: our Education Establishment is married to the idea that  K-12 schools must not use the most efficient methods. The result is that millions of children remain semi-literate. Please. We can do so much better.

I believe this new article – "Why Kids Can't Read" – is the best I've written. I don't think any parent or teacher can read this and not understand what has been going on.

 Please pass this on to parents and teachers, especially. And I'm sure there are millions of kids in middle and high school who would appreciate knowing what has been done to them.
