#3 Hard enough getting kids to read good, well-written books - should be about impossible to teach from crappy BS books.

#4 Probably mainly a way to get taxpayers to buy the crappy BS books and enrich their politicallt-connected writers.

#5 Do they WANT kids to find reading "undeniably, unquestionably, uncool"? (Points for anyone geek enough to get the reference)

#6 I like to kick back in the evening, in front of the fireplace and read a few chapters from The Compendium of Invasive Plant Species.
What kid wouldn't want to read about Swashbucklers, Astronauts or Fiberglass Insulation Standards as it relates to LEEDS certification of commercial high occupancy housing?

#7 More likely the 'informational text' will be more in the way if 'An Inconvenient Truth', 'My two Mommies', etc...

#8 Actually, I think that deciding what my kid should read is my business---and not some lit teacher's.

#9 It's not even being decided by a lit teacher - some political hack back east will make those decisions for both of you.

When he's not making decisions about your healthcare that is.
