    It’s a problem alright, even in first world countries. Too many people here can’t read. They get all the way through the school system, and come out the other end illiterate – 12 years of schooling, and nobody has taught them to read! In this country I think the way we teach reading is part of the problem. The “look and say” method that NZ teachers use doesn’t work for many kids. I also think giving teachers performance pay would be a great place to start, but the teachers’ unions disagree.

  2. Hugh Paxton Says:

    Unions loathe merit and individual achievement. They are in my opinion and experience an unmitigated force for lack of progress. A good teacher must be rewarded!. A dullard should be expelled from his/her profession and sent back to school with a note for his parents. Cheers! Hugh .
