Did You See "Reading Failures, Dropouts, Delinquency and Crime" by Newell W. Tune? It appears in the Fall, 1973, issue of the Spelling Progress Bulletin. Tune points out that even though education in America's schools has improved, it is still inadequate. The nonreader has been with us since the dawn of literacy, and there are still 18 million American adults who cannot read a newspaper. This stimulating article states that a reading disability, more than any other single factor, accounts for behavior problems, truancy, and general school failure. Well-known authors are quoted throughout this article.
