The first meeting of the task force Read to Lead was held April 25th at the Capitol in Madison.
Of the 14 attendees only one was a person of color, Representative Jason Fields.
There were no MPS teachers or reading specialists.
There were no bilingual specialists.
There was no one representing ESL students.
The committee appeared to be ideologically stacked.
There was no one representing balanced literacy.
Expect prescriptive, industry driven “solutions” to low achievement in reading.
Expect the “reading wars” to be resurrected with “scientifically-based reading instruction and intervention” to answer everything.
The second meeting of the Governor’s Read to Lead task force will be Tuesday, May 31st.
