While the district shares the success of the few they fail to share with the community the failing test scores in reading and math in our district. Closing the digital divide may be an important goal but if students can’t read the digital divide doesn’t matter. 1:5 children have dyslexia and learn to read using a systematic structured literacy program. SESD continues to demand our teachers use balanced literacy and Fontes and Pinell, teaching students to guess and use pictures as the clue. When the pictures are no longer present our children are even further behind. Resources to help our children are not provided dispite request by teachers. When will SESD incorporate the proven science in reading into our district and stop failing our children?
