Scintillating study on vocabulary

October 16, 2008

To the editor:

How stupefying that the USD 204 superintendent informed the school board that a study (presented at a conference) suggests that children who learn more words have the ability to have more career options than those who learn fewer.

Did there really need to be a study to know that?

Every adult knows vocabulary is important. It contributes to the ability to read, which contributes to the ability to learn.

How scintillating!
