Literacy should not be optional in our schools

Prison-library-006This article from David Florig.  executive director of the West Philadelphia Alliance for Children,  discusses the fact that prisons are required to have libraries, but schools are not required to do so. 

Florig points out that early literacy education is key to helping students graduate successfully.

An interesting parallel. One you should definitely share with your administrators.
