Literacy is a right of all people. “The great object to be accomplished in reading as a rhetorical exercise is, to convey to the hearer, fully and clearly, the ideas and feelings of the writer.” McGuffey, William Holmes

Boys Don't Read, Except When They Do
Teach Them To Read!
Most boys lag behind girls during primary and many never really become fluent readers because that is our culture, alliteracy! "Boys will be boys" I was severely dyslexic during my elementary school days and all but a few teachers had no expectation for me ever becoming a competent reader. Teachers, parents, and students low expectations are working against fluent literate boys.
