January 2, 2000 | VIRGINIA RILEY, Editor's note: The writer is an 83-year-old grandmother who is serving her second year as a volunteer elementary school classroom aide. At the invitation of the Reading Page, she has written a layperson's view of the struggles students face today as they learn to read in the public schools. Other viewpoints are welcome
I am a volunteer soldier in the war for literacy. When I heard reports that many of our children lacked the ability to read, I gladly enlisted to be a classroom teacher's aide. Currently, I work six hours a week in first- and third-grade classrooms at Bear Flag Elementary School, which is in the Sacramento City Unified School District. What I've seen really worries me. Students are being forced to struggle with high-minded reading texts that have little to do with their daily lives.
