There is only one thing more unfortunate than a person who can't read. It's a person who won't read. You can find them staring vacantly into a TV screen or playing electronic frames virtually non-stop.

Let us assume that over the past twenty five years, seventy percent of West Virginia students have been unable to read at their attained third grade level.
