The Debate Over LiteracyBook - 1998
Educational psychiatrist Coles attacks conservatives for meddling in methods of teaching reading and for suggesting that genetics and race may affect people's learning capabilities. On the contrary, he argues, the cogent factors are a student's health, emotional well being, nutrition, and socioeconomic status. All of these, he says, can and must be equalized else the schools will continue to fail children. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
