In the school district I teach in, core subject teachers are not requiring the students to read. In the classes I go into (Special Education inclusion), I have yet to see them open a textbook, much less a supplemental trade book. This district has not gone to digital textbooks yet.
The result of this negligence is low reading skills, low reading scores, and no continuity. Learning is pretty much...HIT or MISS. Sad, but true.
