Critical Literacy and an Analysis of the Blueprint for Reform

Although the Blueprint for Reform was published by the U.S. Department of Education a year ago I find Ernest Morrell’s analysis of it to be worth a second look for two reasons. One, he is speaking at the Simmons College Race, Education and Democracy Lecture and Book Series this Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Two, with gems like – “critical literacy is a matter of life and death. Students, families, communities, and neighborhoods simply cannot survive in the 21st century without raising literacy rates” – it is an urgent call to action. Read the whole Critical Literacy article and post your reactions below.
