PROMOTING EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION TO REDUCE POVERTY
Require Captions on Cartoons So Young Children are Exposed to Reading
This is Especially Important for At-Risk Kids and Children Living in Poverty
In 1989, I learned Deaf Children Were Being Taught to Read from TV Captions
I Thought This Concept Should Be Utilized to Help All Hearing Kids Learn to Read
1990-2000, I Created the American Literacy Association to Promote TV Captions
I Received Hundreds of Letters of Support for My Proposals from Across U.S.
This Includes the White House, Governors, Senators, & Business Leaders
