I spent a good part of my morning thinking about and talking about the inequity that exists in our public schools.
Whenever I have this conversation, I can’t help but think of my favorite Mem Fox quote.
“If every parent understood the huge educational benefits and intense happiness brought about by reading aloud to their children, and if every parent- and every adult caring for a child-read aloud a minimum of three stories a day to the children in our lives, we could probably wipe out illiteracy within one generation.”
-Mem Fox, (Reading Magic)
Maybe it really is that easy…
So true, Stacey! I almost feel guilty sometimes, that Baby Bookworm is read to so much, while for some kids they get so little..
