10/15/02

The Des Moines Register reports that a candidate for the city's school board—40 year teaching veteran Jim Patch—believes students shouldn't have to be able to read to get a high school diploma, since to do so would discriminate against dyslexics. "I would like to see us be accountable, but as far as tying graduation to reading, we're going to have a lot of architects and artists and doctors out there who aren't going to graduate from high school if we do that," he said.
