"Completely ruins a child's desire to read!!!"

February 22, 2016  |  By HKFarber

Pros

Absolutely NONE

Cons

I am a University Professor who recently moved the family across the United States and my daughters are now in a school with AR reading. My oldest daughter went from a straight A student in a pre-ivy league school that absolutely LOVED reading to completely refusing to read!! In fact, she used to love reading so much that I would catch her reading all night long! She read books that are considered "above" her AR level that she is now no longer "allowed" to read according the AR reading program! Now we are fighting with her to get her to read even the most simple book - and she will state that "she hates reading now because its boring"!!! In my opinion AR reading has done irreparable damage to my daughter's sense of wonder and excitement over reading! In fact, I would absolutely avoid ANY school that uses the AR reading system! My daughter tested grades above her class at the beginning of this school year but after several months of the AR reading program she now tests well below that!!

Summary

As an educator, I find this entire system to be very counter productive!!! I can not believe that this system was "sold" to so many schools as a good way to test/teach reading!! Someone has definitely been sold a "bill of goods"!!! As a Professor, I will tell you that this program will absolutely kill your child's sense of excitement for reading and as a parent, I will passionately fight this system with every fiber in my being!!

Pros

It help teachers by bing able to see how much your childs has read at home on his or her free time. The teachers use this program at school for the kids. At home the parents sould be able to use this program for their child.

Cons

That parents cannot use this program at home for their child when their chld uses this prgramat school. If they can use it in schools we should be able to use it at hme for the same reasons.

Summary

It help teachers by bing able to see how much your childs has read at home on his or her free time. The teachers use this program at school for the kids. At home the parents sould be able to use this program for their child. This progam will be good and helpful for all kid to have at home. So we should have this program at home just as much as they should have them in schools. It is only rght for them to be able to have access to the program not oy at school butat home as well. It will help that th child does not have to remember what each and every dtail they rad untl thy geto school the next day.
