    Re: Bedtime reading could disadvantage other children, academic says

    Well this story takes the prize for the day for telling people to feel guilty for all the children who do not get a bedtime story read to them. To feel guilty because you were/are a good parent and are causing other children to be disadvantaged because of it. You should feel guilty for the bond you have created with your child which will indeed play a role in his success and others don't have. If the idiots running academia these days are so concerned about the disadvantaged because they don't get bedtime stories read to them, may I suggest they give up a percentage of their Cadillac pensions to fund a new program "Bedtime stories for all" Geesh...... just another example why states in this country really need to get back control of their own school systems and idiots like this in academia will be told to shut up and sit down

    Does any of this suggest there is something drastically wrong here.
    Yes, lack of books on poor households with small children to be precise.

    I see you avoided all the real problems that has caused no books in poor households. Failed Liberalism.
