More outside pressure...

Professor Plum has been chronicling the tale of Lewis Lemon elementary school in Rockford, IL. Principal Tiffany Parker stood up for her belief in direct instruction in reading and has sadly paid the price. The new district superintendent has insisted on the use of balanced literacy, and Principal Parker's backbone has cost her her job. So head over to the Professor's site, read up on it, and then head over to Chuck Muth's site and sign his petition. Don't let this fine educator get trampled by the ideologues running the schools in Rockford.
