What was ignorant of reality? K teachers getting $75 per year, even to start, because it could wreck kids feelings about education early? Lol. I taught my kid to read, and remediated others. Per others that have done it, including parents who are teachers, teaching reading is one of the easiest things in the world to do. Just because it's important, doesn't mean it's hard to do.
