A Find from '89

Courtesy of my mom, who saves everything, I found this article in a 1989 newspaper. It was with a box of scarves; my mom had saved an article about different ways to tie scarves and this was underneath it.


I'm mainly interested in this article as a historical document chronicling the "literacy crisis." Note that this article predates the WWW and all manner of other distractions. One could also use it to argue for having students write about topics from their personal lives. Hopefully you can click the image and be able to read the text on the size-large image, but if not, click "original" for bigger text.
