family literacy day

I direct you to the inestimable Wendell Dryden over at qualities - communities - literacies.

...Sometimes it seems like the gap between support for promotional campaigns that highlight the importance of literacy in families, and support for field work that actually aids families has never been greater. ...Posters and Honda ads and world records are all good and fine. But we're preoccupied by the sight of parents and families largely abandoned along ill-plowed, ice-rutted streets, with nobody else around to do anything about it.
