Devastating--your poem and supporting notes poignantly convey a demoralizing state of affairs. I feel your frustration and sorrow. Important message here! Cheers. LIZ

The problem is patience. When we had a similar problem with children who found it hard to read aloud, we had volunteer mothers helping out.
They could sit and listen without intimidation and the success was phenomenal. Get some extra help and set the guidelines. It is good to pinpoint those who need extra help.

    I tried a couple of times with parental help in the classroom. It didn't go so well, as the mother was doing the child's work for her. But the thought is a good one.

    I have been the volunteer who produced the successful readers. I just made sure I didn't ever interrupt them and let them sound out the new words until they got it. Just listening is good.

I know how you feel. I taught for a year in a special school 'for maladjusted boys'. After spending nearly ten years in mainstream primary schools in the UK, this last year finished me off. It was hell on earth.

What i've found is that they may fall sometimes, but the expectation is to make sure EVERYONE does well which means that NO ONE really performs or is expected to perform at their true ability level.... sigh. A great 'story in a poem' here to make a point, Monica. :) Your rhythm is a bit bumpy in spots and not consistent, but you have great rhymes! ;) :) Thanx for sharing and best of luck! ;)
