Did You Know - Reading First

Ahhh - another comment - this one left by Dizzy Dezzi - someone else reads my posts! Thanks for stopping by - all of you.

What else is there to say? Another day - more Republican corruption...

From the Washington Post

Four officials who helped oversee a federal reading program for young students have pocketed significant sums of money from textbook publishers that profited from the $1 billion-a-year initiative, a Democratic congressional report disclosed yesterday.

The report from the office of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) offers fresh details on the extensive financial ties between publishers and officials who helped implement the Reading First program. Over the past several months, the program has faced numerous allegations of conflicts of interest and cronyism.
