One has to realize that the powerful industrial groups concerned in
the manufacture of arms are doing their best in all countries to
prevent the peaceful settlement of international disputes, and that
rulers can achieve this great end only if they are sure of the
vigorous support of the majority of their peoples. * Albert Einstein

Study Links Drop in Test Scores to a Decline in Time Spent Reading By
MOTOKO RICH Americans - particularly young Americans - appear to be
reading less for fun, and as that happens, their reading test scores
are declining. At the same time, performance in other academic
disciplines like math and science is dipping for students whose
access to books is limited, and employers are rating workers
deficient in basic writing skills.
That is the message of a new report being released today by the
National Endowment for the Arts, based on an analysis of data from
about two dozen studies from the federal Education and Labor
Departments and the Census Bureau as well as other academic,
foundation and business surveys. After its 2004 report, 'Reading at
Risk,' which found that fewer than half of Americans over 18 read
novels, short stories, plays or poetry, the endowment sought to
collect more comprehensive data to build a picture of the role of all
reading, including nonfiction. In his preface to the new 99-page
report Dana Gioia, chairman of the endowment, described the data as
'simple, consistent and alarming.' Among the findings is that
although reading scores among elementary school students have been
improving, scores are flat among middle school students and slightly
declining among high school seniors. These trends are concurrent with
a falloff in daily pleasure reading among young people as they
progress from elementary to high school, a drop that appears to
continue once they enter college. The data also showed that students
who read for fun nearly every day performed better on reading tests
than those who reported reading never or hardly at all.
Three years ago 'Reading at Risk,' which was based on a study by the
Census Bureau in 2002, provoked a debate among academics, publishers
and others, some of whom argued that the report defined reading too
narrowly by focusing on fiction, poetry and drama. Others argued that
there had not been as much of a decline in reading as the report
suggested. This time the endowment did not limit its analysis to
so-called literary reading. It selected studies that asked questions
about 'reading for fun' or 'time spent reading for pleasure,' saying
that this could refer to a range of reading materials. 'It's no
longer reasonable to debate whether the problem exists,' said Sunil
Iyengar, director of research and analysis for the endowment. 'Let's
not nitpick or wrangle over to what extent is reading in decline.'
In an interview Mr. Gioia said that the statistics could not explain
why reading had declined, but he pointed to several commonly accepted
culprits, including the proliferation of digital diversions on the
Internet and other gadgets, and the failure of schools and colleges
to develop a culture of daily reading habits. In addition, Mr. Gioia
said, 'we live in a society where the media does not recognize,
celebrate or discuss reading, literature and authors.' In seeking to
detail the consequences of a decline in reading, the study showed
that reading appeared to correlate with other academic achievement.
In examining the average 2005 math scores of 12th graders who lived
in homes with fewer than 10 books, an analysis of federal Education
Department statistics found that those students scored much lower
than those who lived in homes with more than 100 books. Although some
of those results could be attributed to income gaps, Mr. Iyengar
noted that students who lived in homes with more than 100 books but
whose parents only completed high school scored higher on math tests
than those students whose parents held college degrees (and were
therefore likely to earn higher incomes) but who lived in homes with
fewer than 10 books Better reading skills were also correlated with
higher income. In an analysis of Education Department statistics
looking at eight weekly income brackets, the data showed that 7
percent of full-time workers who scored at levels deemed 'below
basic' on reading tests earned $850 to $1,149 a week, the
fourth-highest income bracket, while 20 percent of workers who had
scored at reading levels deemed 'proficient' earned such wages.
o After reading this is it any wonder that most Americans had no
trouble going to war and supporting Bush who had approval rating in
the 80+% range back then. Outsourcing of smart jobs to hamburger
tossers doesn't help anything except B&N's profits. You go to a B&N
supermarket bookstore and ask where Baudelaire is and the salespeople
are very likely to ask [it's happened to me] "Is that fiction or
o Most People [according to recent reports] Believe Iraq Had Weapons
of Mass Destruction, Was Supporting Al Qaeda and that U.S. Statements
about Them before War Were Not Exaggerated or Misleading. by Humphrey
[So I guess there's not much chance the government will apologize for
the way Americans reacted to the other countries being against going
to war especially the French.] Critics of President Bush and Prime
Minister Tony Blair argue that the statements they made to justify
the war in Iraq were misleading and inaccurate. They point to the
fact that no clear evidence of weapons of mass destruction or of
Iraqi support for Al Qaeda have been found. Most Americans clearly do
not agree with these critics. Indeed, most people (55%) believe that
what we were told by the U.S. government before the war about weapons
of mass destruction and links to the Al Qaeda terrorist organization
was generally accurate. Fully 69% of all adults believe that Iraq had
weapons of mass destruction, and 35% believe that we have found clear
evidence of these weapons. Almost half of all adults (48%) believe
that we have also found clear evidence that Iraq was supporting Al
Qaeda. Given these findings it is no surprise that a 56% to 37%
majority rejects the idea that the U.S. government deliberately
exaggerated the reports of weapons of mass destruction in order to
increase support for the war. A 56% majority believes that the U.S.
government tried to present this information accurately.
o And then there's the story: Nearly Two-thirds of U.S. Adults
Believe Human Beings Were Created by God -- Earlier this year, the
State Board of Education in Kansas reignited an old debate -- whether
or not creationism should be taught in public schools -- and shone
the spotlight on a new theory, intelligent design. While many in the
scientific community may question why this issue has been raised
again, a new national survey shows that almost two-thirds of U.S.
adults (64%) agree with the basic tenet of creationism, that "human
beings were created directly by God." At the same time, approximately
one-fifth (22%) of adults believe "human beings evolved from earlier
species" (evolution) and 10 percent subscribe to the theory that
"human beings are so complex that they required a powerful force or
intelligent being to help create them" (intelligent design).
Moreover, a majority (55%) believe that all three of these theories
should be taught in public schools, while 23 percent support teaching
creationism only, 12 percent evolution only, and four percent
intelligent design only.
o Today's Dutch papers report that 108 American Soldiers have
committed suicide since the beginning of the Iraq and Afghanistan
conflicts. That's as high in 1990. What that tells me in part is that
war is hell but also that kids themselves don't read enough [like
Johnny Got His Gun et al. I mean, with Internet especially there is
no need to be ignorant]. War is hell and that must be a shock to
some. What's more, there is an entire culture of weapons dealers and
politicians who push this religious-patriotism and that includes all
those parents who are so 'proud' of their kids who join the armed
services and encourage them to do the families proud. It is an entire
culture dedicated to perpetuating the cliches of patriotism.
o Then you have all those Wal-Mart who claim to not know how WM
operates in the world and how the workers are treated in China, etc.
who make junk for Americans. It is not as if the information is not
out there but willful ignorance combined with culture reinforced
ignorance [stupid leads to more sales?]. If you want to read more
about what happens in those factories go to the Clean Clothes
Campaign Web site.
o Approved by God: Read in Dutch Volkskrant daily about a great spoof
[www.christvertising.com] the web site basically has business people
who are declared christian can get some 1.6 million americans to pray
for the success of his or YOUR Christian company. "If god loves your
brand, it will become stronger and more successful." This led to lots
of discussions on internet about the efficacy of christvertising.
Companies started coming to the service to promote their product
including GodTube [!!!] which wanted to collaborate on projects.
Mexican and Russian papers and the Washington Post wanted to do
interviews - it was then that the Dutch creative directors Ed van
Pelt and Hesling Reidinga decided to come clean and admit it was all
a spoof, explaining, "Sometimes you just have to do something just
for the fun."
