Does anyone else think this author is over generalizing and oversimplifying the cultural, social and economic differences of "Roadville" and "Trackton" in this reading? The differences between these towns are far more complex than whether or not children are being read bedtime stories. And is the author suggesting that to all the residents and students of "Trackton" need to succeed are lessons in how "Roadville" works? To me this article is articulating an arguement for the style of teaching that Gutierrez, Rymes, and Larson rally against.
