U.S. Literacy Level Not Bad
Intellect, 106, 2388, 104-05, Sep 77
Fred Hechinger, assistant editor of "The New York Times" editorial page, states that the teaching of literacy is not as bad as the media say, nor so good as the experts in English claim. Here he evaluates the importance of reading and writing and makes some suggestions for improving attitudes towards television. He also invites teachers to join in a personal crusade to place value on the meaning of language and words. (Editor/RK)
