I have to say the Governor is doing a good thing in pushing this additional support for reading instruction for young children. It really works! We did this same thing when I served as Mayor and it upped reading proficiency in kids who were lagging. They all came out a least one year ahead of their peers after just six weeks of intense help during the summer. The parents had to sign on to the effort and help the kids in the evenings. I can't think of a better thing to do for children than to give them the power to read well.
