Byron Pitts, Please Jump Into Reading Wars ASAP!!!!!!!!

CBS reporter Byron Pitts was just interviewed about his new book “Step Out On Nothing.” (See five-minute video on YouTube titled “Overcoming Illiteracy.”)

Pitts says he was 12-years-old and “functionally illiterate.” Tests concluded he was a “picture reader.” All the educational nonsense of the past 70 years is right here in this one little episode.

Here’s my take: nobody knows the idiocy of the public schools any better than Byron Pitts. He was a front-line victim of a completely idiotic way to teach reading called Look-Say, Sight Words, Dolch Words, Whole Word--all of it wholly worthless.

I call on Byron Pitts to lead a campaign against the Education Establishment to make it stop doing to young children of today what happened to him 25 years ago.

Byron, to get your bearings, please see “42: Reading Resources” on

The only reason the Education Establishment can get away with all their shenanigans is that the top people--in business, media, and academia--stand silently by. Am I the only one who finds this disgusting? It's time to make some noise. is The Answer

About Me

My photo

Remain a novelist, artist, poet, and art director. But main activity is writing about education reform.. The schools, now bad due to ideology and laziness, could be easily improved. 

That claim is clearly explained in new book  "Saving K-12--What happened to our public schools. How do we fix them?"

I invite everyone to join my crusade or start your own. The worst thing is letting the Education Establishment continue its reign of incompetence.
