Democrat Patty Murray is wrong on dyslexic students

Washington DC  April 15 2015,

It's a disappointment to see Democrat Patty Murray come out in opposition to the amendment pushed by Senator Cassidy (R-LA) to fund teaching students with dyslexia. She incorrectly ignores the overwhelming science of teaching dyslexic students and wrongly believes every penny used to teach teachers must benefit all students to learn to read, not focus solely on one diagnosis. While it's true all students with many differing abilities or disability labels, who are entirely capable of learning to read, and yet are not being taught to read simply because the teachers have never been taught the science of reading. Murray does not understand or chooses to ignore that it's not possible to teach every student with the same approach and dyslexic students require very specific methods.
