EDUCATION WEEK QUESTION: Is the Teaching of Reading Skills Dying in our Schools?

Asks Joe Kingsley Eyiah, OCT, Brookview M. S., Toronto-Canada

Did you know that READING can keep your mind active and engaged well into old age? Reading is considered one of the best habits that one can inculcate in him/her. It leads one to knowledge! 
The old Good Book says that ‘for lack of knowledge my people perish’. Yes, knowledge is power. Though knowledge comes to us in many forms, it best comes in the pages of a book. However, we won’t know until we read what is written in the pages. Therefore reading is the key to knowledge. It is said that the one who reads is a leader!
As a parent and a teacher by profession I can’t overemphasize the importance of reading to the teaching and learning process.

"No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting. She will not want new fashions nor regret the loss of expensive diversions or variety of company if she can be amused with an author in her closet."

— Lady Montagu, providing advice on raising her granddaughter, 1752
