Reading with Grammy - Start Young!

i am not a professional, licensed teacher.
i've been mistaken for one, but no, it's something i've run from.
What i am is an involved parent.
We need those too.
Working as a team with those excellent teachers.

There's a disturbing trend in education in Indiana.  Overempahasis on testing, drill, drill, drill.  i've even heard of drilling kids on restroom breaks so they will be able to pass that high-stakes test!
We should be teaching kids how to think and enjoy learning.  Once we light that fire, the rest will come, if the physical and intellectual equipment is there.
The current approach is more likely to produce bad  teachers  and disheartened students.
You won't get the best from either.
