By the time he was 17, Antonio Rocha had bounced among 11 New York City schools and was reading at a first-grade level.

It wasn't until he told school officials "I want a lawyer!" that things began to change.

Administrators say they never "knowingly" placed him into inappropriate classes or schools. They say Rocha "had chosen to give up on his own education" by rarely showing up to classes, according to a transcript of the hearing included in Fertig's book. But Fertig's account indicates Rocha floundered for years in a system that was simply overwhelmed.

Hanging out in lower Manhattan one September morning in 2001, Rocha, then 12, witnessed the World Trade Center attacks from three blocks away and vowed to join the military. But five years later, he could still barely do simple work. ...

Correct that the absence of teaching phonics is the reason why Johnny Still Can't Read. I am very proficient at reading because I was taught phonics.

Maybe Goo Rugh wasn't around to help him do his thinking.

Keeping to the topic at hand, so-called educationists insist that teaching the 44 sounds (phonemes) of the English 26-letter alphabet is cruel and outdated.

I was trained in Remedial Reading when I worked in PS and what a waste of time that was. Putting words on flashcards and having kids "repeat after me" does NOT teach kids how to CIPHER on their own.

For anyone interested, there are several organizations who champion the phonics method and whose websites you can download for free the 44 phonemes to teach your child. If you work in PS, do NOT let anyone know you are using phonics. I learned that the hard way!

And a general unwillingness to use a dictionary to help them with words they don't understand, mostly learnt from their parents.
