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.
