It has just been reported by the Annie E. Casey Foundation in their Kids Count report that 81% of Michigan's low income 4th graders and 69% of all students are not reading proficiently.

Also in the report, Early Reading Proficiency in the United States the author states, "Michigan is just one of six states that did not make any progress in reading over the past decade."

Is this an indictment of our school system or something else?  We will be talking about this on my show the Live with Renk Show Wednesday 1-29-14.
