In the case of someone failing to learn to read, courts would agree that "the finest teachers were using the most highly appraised curricular methods and it's truly unfortunate that a few children - maybe yours perhaps - never achieved reading skills.
There are some schools where almost everyone learns to read, but others where the statistics are so bad they're embarrassing.
It's self-evident from numerous surveys that forty to forty-five percent of the children who enter public school each year will not learn to read - on average. These unfortunate persons migrate upward through the system and after 9 or 10 years they usually drop out of school.
Being two years older than their peers, they look for low-paying jobs that don't require reading skill. Teachers shouldn't always be blamed for this sad outcome - although when a child fails to learn to read, his or her teachers are always the nearest scape-goats - very visible and vulnerable.
