Minorities Aren’t Reading

This may be overstated, but I feel like children who aren’t good readers are basically handicapped when it comes to life in general, and definitely with respect to getting a high-end job.

More and more, parents who aren’t teaching their children to love reading are dooming them to a lifetime of struggle.
