The state Superintendent of Schools Nancy Grasmick is encouraging schools to use comic books and graphic novels to engage struggling readers.
Check out the story in today's paper. Do you agree with Grasmick? We would like to hear from you.
I do agree with Dr. Grasmick's suggestion of the use of some high interest reading material for boys. It is a supplement, not replacing other instruction and teachers should have this legitimate option.
The political ramifications between the Geppi's and Grasmicks do make me wonder if there are other motivations here.
