Special Report: Reading First Under Fire

As O'Hanian says, this is, "One of two blockbuster reports, this sounds more and more like ReadingGate:
1. Conspiracy
2. Cover ups
3. Lies and more lies to cover up the conspiracy
4. Top folks in Washington leading the conspiracy and cover ups

Here is the other report.

You must read these to understand how and why all the states that are signing up for reading first are ending up with the same programs. The game has been fixed. Be sure to check out the table showing what the states chose and how many times they applied before then accepted the "correct" programs and finally became accepted. As I have been saying all along, this is more about making money for those with the right political connections than it is about what is best for kids.
