Here's another thing VA. When I tutored for NCLB, one woman at this place was in her 70s who taught in the 1960's. She said teachers back then didn't even finish their degree program, but worked on it while they taught school. They did not have the problems back then we have now in reading per her. Guess, it takes a Masters to 'f them up these days.
Easiest thing in the world to do—teaching reading.
