One Response to “Toronto, ON - March 18th, The Sutton Place Hotel”

  1. Jo-Anne Gross Says:

    Last September I trained 20 SK and Grade 1 teachers for the Labrador School Board - so they could begin to get a handle on their literacy problems. I have over 130 special education teachers trained at the District School Board in Niagara here in Ontario and many others - teachers are in need of learning how to teach reading - they don`t know how. Universities are telling them it happens like learning to speak - formidably wrong - a theory responsible for rampant illiteracy growth for over 35 years now. Teachers don`t know the difference between a vowel and a consonant - they need training. That is the great source of all our problems. Sad, sad, sad for the teachers and the students.
