I promise it's not "Pick on Zach Wamp Day". It's entirely coincidental that the comment below and this one are back to back.
This also from the Tennessean political blog:
“Our children are not reading proficiently when they enter school,” Wamp said.No kidding. I'm betting that most taxpayers and parents kinda thought that maybe they'd learn to read IN school.
The quote goes on:
“There needs to be a big effort early. Part of it is pre-K. Part of it is Head Start. Part of it is local and foundation support for early reading. Our children are not reading proficiently.If Zach Wamp thinks an expansion of pre-K is going to be the answer...he's wrong. Following Gov. Bredesen in this path will be a waste of money...but the teacher's union will love him. Again, is this more Washington speak? Or is it misspeak?
