  1. Oh man, “reading levels”. I only think they serve a purpose if it pushes kids higher. And sometimes kids need to be pushed. They’re just as lazy as us adults 🙂


    • Amen. Sadly, it’s like my daughter is being punished for reading above her weight class – “since you’re at level X, you can only read these things for credit,” and they’re things neither of us would willing read, much less a high school freshman.

      • Ugh. Hopefully this won’t kill her love of reading. I went to small private schools for my whole life, so was always encouraged to read “higher” and to do book reports on books that I chose. It really makes a difference if you’re not being forced into someone else’s mold.
