Another Bad Idea

Just when I had decided they had done everything possible to destroy education in America, they have thrown another scoop of dirt on the grave. The latest idiocy is a decision that the children's classics like "Little Women" and "Treasure Island" are too hard to wade through for those children with poor reading skills. The solution is to retell these stories with simpler language and easier words. Ten of the literary classics have been published and 9 more are in the works. To date, 533 thousand copies have been sold. This suggests our so-called educators are buying into the publishers marketing nonsense that these books are for the student with learning disabilities. My sad hypothesis is the education establishment is so stupid that they find the books easier to read and thus choose them for their students.
