I work in the school system everyday I am still amazed at the lack of our families ability to read I feel that we have moved on from this issue and it has been forgotten We have experienced such a growth in the educational field that now I feel that we have backslidden leaving the literacy problem behind Working in Johnson and Magoffin Counties I get the chance to meet a lot of families We do a lot of in-home therapy and have lots of paperwork to be signed I have been so surprised by the majority of the home visits I see so many families that are still illiterate Many of them cant sign their names or read We are in one of the greatest technological eras that the world has seen We have forgotten that everyone doesnt have access to computers Many of the children in our schools are so far behind in the basics that I fear we are backtracking in history There was such a rush toward education from the sixties 60s up to the eighties 80s It seemed as though every commercial had something about someone being taught to read or helping teach someone to read President Lyndon Johnson was quoted that the war on poverty had to be declared and that education was the answer to everything The Great Society From President Johnson to President George Bush we have heard the message but the subjects are still unable to read and write in many of our rural areas We now are waging war for a greater education for all It is hard to get the children better educated when they are still not getting their basics I believe we need to approach this from the family viewpoint I wish we had door-to-door teachers that could go out and help these families to learn to read and write They realize the need for their children to get a good education
