In the Sunday, Sept. 16, story, “Black male plight discussed,” Lima Senior basketball Coach Quincey Simpson told of a junior in high school who cannot read and has been placed in a class for kids with bad behavior.
Children are taught to read in elementary school. Remember “Dick and Jane” and “See Spot Run”?
Every one of those elementary teachers who passed this child from one grade to the next should be held accountable. What a disgrace to our school system.
