DOH! I meant to post this up when I heard it last week. But, alas, I'm getting old.
This report covers the NEA's new report on reading and the "startling declines" it indentifies. Nothing new here, but it reminds me that I have to download that report and see what's what. But I dig it when this topic gets national news coverage—enough Britney and Lindsay already! Jeez.
You can listen to the report here.
