I did get some good points from the article but the folks who were commenting on how realistic some of those points were don't need to be attacked. We need to instead, figure out how to make the suggestions workable. Yes, we should do all we can to establish early literacy and help each child reach his/her potential but we cannot do it ALONE. PARENTS and other stakeholders in society must also step up. Teachers can give suggestions but we are not God who can fix major dysfunction, poverty, and basic misery which will have a definite effect on our students' ability to read or learn anything else for that matter.
