Raising Reading Boys

This article from the Wall Street Journal is a fabulous expression about the connection between education and electronic media, especially for boys.

The best quote in this opinion piece is as follows:

"One obvious problem with the SweetFarts philosophy of education is that it is more suited to producing a generation of barbarians and morons than to raising the sort of men who make good husbands, fathers and professionals. If you keep meeting a boy where he is, he doesn't go very far."

I couldn't agree more. Thanks, Thomas Spence!
